Show Geography in a Clear and Impactful Way

Maps are like guides that help us understand the world around us. But dealing with all the information about places and geography can be pretty tough. Figuring out how places are connected, showing information in a clear way, and keeping people interested can be a real challenge.

This is where interactive data visualization maps step in – they're the answer to these difficulties. These special maps show the surface of the Earth or specific places in a visual and easy-to-understand way. It's like going on a cool journey that helps you understand where things are.

Interactive data visualization maps are more than just your regular maps. They let you do things like zoom in and out and show information that's happening right now. This makes it simpler to understand complicated stuff and turns it into something that's easy to use.

When you use these interactive maps, you can solve the problems that come with showing tricky data. And not only that, you'll open up a whole new way of understanding space. These maps work really well in our digital world, making it easy for people to show geography in a clear and impactful way.

Explore Why Maps Are Useful

Take a dive into the world of visual storytelling and find out why maps are a valuable tool you shouldn't ignore.

Geographical Data Visualization

Unlock the potential of importing and visualizing geographical data effortlessly. Datasets containing location information, such as latitude, longitude coordinates, or addresses, can be seamlessly uploaded.

Once uploaded, the data points will be automatically plotted on a map, offering a clear representation of data distribution across various regions, countries, or specific points of interest.

Location-Based Analysis

Harness the power of maps for location-based analysis by superimposing data into distinct regions. This analytical approach aids in comprehending spatial relationships, recognizing patterns, and gaining insights into how different areas contribute to overall trends or performance.

For instance, the mapping of sales data based on regions can reveal areas of strength and areas that require improvement.

Enhanced Storytelling

Elevate your storytelling through the use of maps, which serve as potent tools. Maps allow you to vividly illustrate journeys, depict routes, and showcase the impact of events across diverse locations.

For a travel-themed infographic, maps can be employed to chart visited destinations and travel routes, enhancing context and immersing the audience in your narrative.

Interactive Engagement

Forge interactive connections with your audience using dynamic maps. Incorporate tooltips to provide supplementary information when users hover over data points or regions. Clickable regions can be linked to more comprehensive details or external resources.

Furthermore, the integration of zoomable maps empowers users to explore specific areas of interest at varying levels of detail, fostering engagement and delivering an immersive experience.

Infographic Variety

Enhance the influence of your Infogram projects by smoothly incorporating maps with other visualization approaches. This blending of diverse visualization methods presents information from multiple dimensions, addressing various learning preferences and increasing accessibility and appeal to a broader audience.

It's worth noting that the mapping tools encompass various customization options, including map projections, color palettes, legends, and labels. This flexibility ensures harmonious integration of maps into your overarching infographic or data presentation, aligning seamlessly with your branding and design preferences.

Where to use interactive maps?

Maps are ideal when sharing geographic data. A visual representation of statistics or numbers tells a much more compelling story than a list of data and comparisons. Maps can be used to show country statistics, sales by region, voting results, weather updates, and more.

Infogram’s maps can live beyond basic reports (although they’re great there too!), our maps are ideal in your next infographicpresentation, news article, or social media campaign. Create a map to share your data in a way that’s compelling and quickly engages and educates your audience.

How to create an icon map?

Infogram icon (marker) maps allow you to place an icon or symbol anywhere in the world. You can change the default circle icon to any image from our large icon library.

  1. Click on the map you’d like to edit
  2. Choose Map Properties
  3. Select Icon Map under Map type
  4. Click Select Icon to search our library for the perfect image

What are map drawing best practices?
  1. Use simple outlines and avoid design distractions. Less is more.
  2. Select colors wisely. Use color or text to emphasize important data. For map color gradients we suggest you check out ColorBrewer
  3. If you need to show regions with common data or patterns, we suggest you arrange them into groups, which is easy with an Infogram Area map

How to create a single map?
  1. Select the Responsive web and mobile layouts option at the top of your Library. You will find the option to use a single map on the left side panel. This is the best choice if you plan on creating a map without any additional objects, such as images, charts, text fields, etc.
  2. Select or search for the specific map you are looking to use.

How to place markers on your map?

By default, every new map added to your project is an Area map (regions represented with a color variation). However, you can switch to an Icon map (where points on the map are designated with icons or symbols) anytime.

To switch to an Icon map:

  1. Click on the map to select it.
  2. Click to expand the Map Properties drop-down in the right sidebar.
  3. Select Icon map under Map type.

Pro tip: You can change the default circle to any icon from our icon library. Unlocking icons search with a 200 000+ icon library will require you to have a paid subscription.

  1. From the Map properties tab in the right sidebar, scroll down to the Select icon field.
  2. Click Change to see available icons.
  3. Click on an icon to select it. You will see the new icon update on your map.
