- All right, part one of our Heat Map project…was all about visualizing when Accidents tend to take place.…We did that by showing trends by hour of day…and by day of week,…visualizing where those Accidents are taking place.…So we'll be using the Latitude and Longitude data…in our raw data set to plot Accident Locations…using Excel's Power Map tool.…This will add an entirely new level of insight…to our project, and I hope you decide to check it out.…
Chris Dutton provides hands-on examples designed to showcase why certain functions—DATEVALUE, VLOOKUP, COUNTIF, and more—are so valuable to mapping data. He also shows how to use conditional color-scale formatting to map your data matrix, and find different ways to examine the same data with different criteria, using dynamic filters. The course wraps up with a few finishing touches to make your heat map even more useful and engaging, including a preview of what's possible with the Power Map addin.
