Plotting points - Density Map

We are showing here how density visualization can be created by plotting points.
It is important to use a SVG shape marker /symbol/ to be able to apply a transparent fill color.
High concentration area will appear darker why low concentration area will appear lighter.
The visual effect is obtained by overlapping points. With more points overlapping, darker the color will appear.
    Getting ready to plot points on your map work
  1. Start by setting the canvas background and outline shape /division/ color.
  2. Enable "Locations" feature.
  3. Enable "Markers" feature.
  4. You may not want to display any labels for your points. Reset font size /set it 0 pixels/.
  5. Pick a SVG symbol from our library. You can adjust later the symbol style, by setting a transparency value for the fill color.
  6. Set a size in pixel for the marker /point - symbol/ displayed for each point /coordinate/ in your data set.
  7. Choose to have the marker centered on the point's coordinates.
    Add your points set
  1. Choose Geographic Coordinates type if you have prepared your data set as Latitude-Longitude points.
  2. Select comma separator if your data fields are separated by a comma character.
  3. Paste your points data set.
  4. Validate your data formatting and display the points.
    Adjusting how your points are plotted on the map work
  1. Preview how the points are plotted.
  2. Adjust point representation size. More points - smaller the size.
  3. Set the Fill color.
  4. Choose a darker color and set a higher transparency.
    Creating the density effect
  1. Set a smaller size.
  2. Remove the symbol outline.
    Adjust the style for your marker to obtain the desired density effect
  1. Choose a dark color.
  2. Set a very high transparency.
  3. Set a small point size.
  4. You can clearly visualize the most populated areas as dark red spots on the map.
