Using Symbols for Comparative Data

To visualize how the administrative units compare based on a data set, you could use symbols.
For "Single" symbols - the symbol size in pixels is reflecting the size of data for that unit. Larger symbol means a greater data value.
For "Multiple" symbols - the number of symbols for that unit will represent how large the data value is.
    Load your data and setup the visualization
  1. Load your data as comma or TAB separated values. The ID in your data set must match the administrative unit ID - also called "Shape" or "Division".
  2. Give a name to your data set. This will be shown on the "Legend".
  3. Choose "Symbols" representation.
  4. Pick a "Library" symbol, or upload your image or SVG shape.
  5. Choose "Single" symbol.
    For small numeric values, you can use "Multiple".
    The symbol with the same size will be displayed multiple times, to suggest how large the value is for that unit.
  6. Set the symbol range size in pixels, to reflect the numeric data value for each unit.
    Adjust the visualization
  1. Set a stroke for your SVG shape symbol.
  2. Change the fill color.
  3. Reset the position for each unit symbol, if you moved them manually or resized the map viewport.
  4. Reposition the symbol manually. Click on the symbol, then drag the circle marker.
  5. You can manually reposition the labels, too. Select the label /click on it/ then drag it to the desired position.
