A map chart is normally built by several different layers. A number of different types of layers exist and each layer type serves a different purpose in the map chart.
Add the relevant layers to your map chart and configure them to suit your needs.
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.
Adding a marker layer Markers display positional coordinates on a map. The markers are customizable shapes that are placed on the map based on the position coordinates (latitudes and longitudes), or based on the geographic information provided in your data that represent zip codes, cities, counties, regions, or countries.
Adding a feature layer Features display colored areas on a map. The features are administrative areas that are placed on the map based on the geographic information provided in your data and they represent zip codes, cities, counties, regions, or countries.
Adding a TMS layer The Tile Map Service (TMS) is a widely supported map protocol. Use it to display a map background from a third party provider or to change the default map layer.
Adding a WMS layer The Web Map Service (WMS) is a standard protocol for serving map images that a map server generates using data from a Geographic Information System (GIS) database. You can add a WMS layer to a map chart visualization to provide specialized context.
