Adding a map layer
A map layer gives a geographical context to your data by rendering a worldwide map background under your data layers. You can add multiple map layers in one map chart.
Right-click the map chart visualization, and from the menu, click
The Properties popover is displayed, with the Map chart popover showing the current layers, in their layer order, top to bottom.
Add new layer at the bottom of the
Map chart list.
A list of the layer options is displayed.
From the list, click
The map layer is added to the Map chart layer list, the Properties list for the layer is displayed, and the layer with its default settings is added to the map chart
- Optional: Drag and drop the layer to a new position on the list.
- Review and set the map chart properties of interest to refine the display.
Map layer example
This example shows that the Title (in the Layers drop-down) is set to the default Map type, Rich reference map. The Appearance settings are configured so that the transparency value enables the user to see the underlying county outlines and interstate highways, which is supplied by a TMS layer.
