Usage Hints
  • It may be difficult to see any color coding applied to comparatively small regions on the map. In this case you may wish to geocode your region names as (longitude, latitude) coordinates and use Proportional Symbol Map, perhaps disabling circle size coding and exterior color coding, then using for interior color coding whichever column you would have used with Choropleth Map.
