What, Why

A choropleth map is a map in which areas (like states or countries) are filled with colors according to your data. Currently, we support only two maps – India (State) and India (Districts). If you want other maps, please reach out at the@humane.club.


How

Add a name and the description to explain your user what is the view all about. This will be shown on the site inside the dropdown when user switches between views.

Once you created a choropleth map and set the colors, you can customize and refine your visualisation

  • Customize colors: with the color panel, you can decide which colors the regions should have on your map by adding the color hex code separated by commas.
  • What color to use when there is no data? when the data for a given location is empty then it will pick up the color from this field
  • Customize range: currently, we just support ranges and this is how it looks like
  • Zoom: will make your map zoomable on click on a district or state. You will see that this succeeded if your map gets a grey hint text “Click on map to zoom”.
  • Legends: by default, Humane Sites shows a legend. The map key is crucial for your readers to understand what the colors in your map mean.
  • Customize legends: you can customize the labels of the legends from here.

Choose which columns from the data you want to show on map.

  • Type of map: we should two types of map – India (State) and India (Districts).
  • Primary geographical identifier: The geocode of each region you want to fill with a color. Most often, that’s the name, like state name, district name, ISO code.
  • Map color: select column name by which you want to color the map. If the parameter switch is enabled, then this column name will be ignored.
  • Which column do we use to group during zoom: select the column name by which you want to highlight all the regions. Eg: if you select “state” column then it will highlight all districts in that state when the map is zoomed in.
