Map Point: Shaded Circle and Sized Circle on same cities? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is it possible for Map Point to display one value using a Sized circle and another value using a Shaded circle on the same city? I'm thinking of something like a heat map that also shows the city size represented by the circle size.

    Any input is appreciated.

  • No, because one spot would hide the other spot.

    The way to plot two datasets like this, would be to use a Shaded Area dataset and then one of the Circle datasets. Choose contrasting colors so that you can easily distinguish them.

    Depending on your data, you might also want to consider one of the bar chart graphs. These can get a bit busy when zoomed out, though.
