Map: World Country Charts
World country map charts are based on one attribute (country name) and two metrics. They are supported by all Zoomdata data connectors, however the data must include country names to see results. For more information, see the list of world countries.
To configure default world country map settings for a data source configuration:
Edit the appropriate data source configuration. See Editing a Data Source Configuration.
Select the Charts tab in the data source configuration wizard.
On the Standard subtab of the Charts tab, select Map: World Countries.
If you want to be able to display the data collected by this data source configuration as a world country map, make sure the Map: World Countries checkbox is selected.
Default world country map settings appear on the right side of the page.
Configure the default settings as follows:
Setting Description Country
Select the country attribute that should be used for world map charts with this data source.
Country Limit Specify the maximum number of countries for which results are shown. Note that the default limit (50) is smaller than the number of countries in the world. So some countries will not be shown unless you increase this limit. Country Sort Select a metric or attribute by which the country attribute should be sorted. You can also select the sorting order (ascending or descending). For metrics, you can define the default aggregation function: SUM, AVG, MAX, MIN. See Available Metric Functions. Volume Select a metric for the chart. Color Specify the metric that should be used to determine map colors. You can also define the default aggregation function used for the metric values: SUM, AVG, MAX, MIN, or (for some data sources) LAST VALUE. See Available Metric Functions. Number of colors Specify the number of colors used on the map and in the legend. Display Legend Select this checkbox if you want the legend to be displayed on the chart.
Select the type of legend (Color Palette or Color Range). If you select Color Palette, also select the palette you want used. Volume Select a metric for the chart. You can also define the default aggregation function used for the metric values: SUM, AVG, MAX, MIN, or (for some data sources) LAST VALUE. See Available Metric Functions. Tile Provider Select a tile provider. By default, OpenStreetMap is selected. Tile Provider API Key For MapQuest, MapBox, and CloudMade tile providers, specify the Tile Provider API Key
