Overview

The following table will provide you with information on the different map types and reasons for using each of them, linking you to their individual tutorials.

Raster Map

If you do not have GIS defined columns you can use the Image Maps to create heat maps – these are a good way to display metrics with a spatial element such as Revenue by State or Country You will only be able to render maps for which an image map has been defined.

Google

Google Maps allow you to render location data points onto a Google map which will be displayed as a Yellowfin Chart – along with associated Google map widgets. You will have to have a Google Map Key to use this type of chart

GIS

GIS Maps allow the rendering of complex GIS polygons. These can be used to render spatial reports on the fly based on the GIS data available in a report.

GIS Bubble

GIS Heat
