Visualizing categorical data: Bar Charts & Maps

If the categories are geographical regions such as country, state, or other regional names, Keshif automatically enables rich categorical (aggregated) choropleth maps.

  • The categorical map view allows you to explore the geographic trends in your data, such as hot-spots or regional differences in aggregate data.
  • The categorical bar-chart view view allows you to make richer filtering selections with multiple regions, and to compare data across multiple regions.

To switch the categorical data visualization type (maps or bar chart),

  1. Click the map / list icon on the top-right corner of the chart.
