10 Map Types in Visualization: Make Your Data Eye-catching

The words "geography" and "map" are commonly associated, largely because "map visualization is used to analyze and display the geographically related data and present it in the form of different map types." Readers interested in dabbling in data visualization and map making will enjoy this article, "10 Map Types in Visualization: Make Your Data Eye-catching," which covers some basic principles for creating data displays. As the title suggests, 10 different map types are covered, with a description, visualization, and suggested use for each. For example, point maps may be used for "accident tracking," while line maps are great for showing transportation routes. There is also the three-dimensional rectangular map, branded the "upgraded version of the point map." The conclusion of the piece adds remarks on the best platforms and technologies to create these maps. Readers may recognize one of these suggested apps, Tableau Public, from the 11-17-2017 Scout Report. The other suggested software, FineReport, is freely available to download for personal use, and users will find a link to download it at the top of the article. Readers should note that this article was published in FineReport's blog as an example of how their platform can be used.
