- [Instructor] Geographic data probably needs…the least introduction.…If you have regional numeric data,…you're probably looking for a heat map.…The proper name for this type…of colored regional map is choropleth.…If you have data about locations rather than regions,…you might want a spot map.…You can easily make the spots different sizes and colors…to indicate a value, making a bubble map,…or you can use icons and symbols…to make your map more relevant to a particular topic.…And you can use arcs or lines to indicate some kind of flow.…If you have geographic data,…the best advice I can give you is…to consider ignoring the geographic element entirely.…
It does sound a bit radical,…but sometimes we don't need to know the actual location…of something, even though we have the data.…Take a supply chain, for example.…Do we need to see where in the world our parcel is?…Or do we just need to know what stage…in the process the parcel has reached?…In a similar vein,…if you want to compare data for five locations,…sometimes a bar chart will do the job better,…
