Edit map data

Double-click the map or click Edit Map in the top toolbar to open the map values.

On the right-hand side of the screen, the map panel overlay opens to the Data tab, displaying a table containing the names of the provinces and the numeric values associated with each. As the user enters different values into the table, the shades of the blue color in certain regions on the map change to reflect the new value inputs.

Under the Data tab, edit the values associated with each region on the map by clicking into the cell you want to edit and entering the value, or copy-paste from an external spreadsheet.

Changes to the data in a cell will save automatically when you select another cell or press the Enter/Return key.

The map editing panel is open on the Data tab, overlaying a blue bubble map of Canada with yellow circles of varying size on a design canvas with a yellow gradient background. The user changes the numeric values in the table. As the user enters different values into the table, the size of the yellow circles over certain regions on the map changes to reflect the new value inputs.

On a choropleth map, the regions on the map change colors based on the maximum and minimum value.

On a bubble map, the circles superimposed over the regions on the map will change size based on the maximum and minimum value.

Import map data

Double-click on the map chart or click "Edit Map" to open the Edit Map panel.

Under the Data tab, click the Import button above the spreadsheet to import a spreadsheet with data. You can upload a *.csv or *.xlsx file. The data will automatically appear in the spreadsheet in the Data tab. 

Use the Edit Map panel to adjust the way your data is displayed.
