Chapter 19. Using Maps to Analyze Data

  • Create and edit a data map

    Create a map that illustrates how data is dispersed on common maps.

  • Format a map so it presents data differently

    Represent data with different formats and display different geographic features.

  • Add legends, titles, and floating text

    Enhance your maps with titles, floating text, and legends.

Just as charts enable you to see trends and the relationships between numbers, data mapping enables you to see the relationships between numbers and geographic features. You'll appreciate data mapping if you've ever faced the daunting task of trying to evenly distribute sales regions. Jobs that were error-prone and rarely done, such as showing sales by color-coded regions, can now be automated. Data mapping even automates the endless work required to update push-pin maps. With a few mouse clicks you can do work equivalent to an hour of pushing color-coded pins into a map.
