Time-Series Data : Exploring relations by location with map view

This page is part of Exploring Time-Series Data.  Examples use the world development indicators dataset.

When your data includes location information for each record (for example, country or region) along with time-series data (such as indicators), you can use Keshif's automated map view to explore how an indicator changes over time across geography. Examples of such datasets include world development indicators by World Bank,  Freedom House Index, or  IREX Media Sustainability Index

When you use the map view with time-series data, the color of each record (region) shows the selected attribute at the selected time key.

Opening Map View

When your data defines a record geometry, Keshif shows the map view among view options on top-right of the record display. Click the the globe/map icon to open the map view. Each record in your data will be plotted on a map.

Highlighting a Region (Record)

In this view, you can select individual regions to see the region title, the change of selected attribute over time for that region, and the actively shown value and time. You can click on a region to see all the details relating to that region (e.g. country).

Changing Time-Series (map-color) Attribute

You can change the time-series (indicator) shown on the map by using the color panel. Click on the attribute name to see a list of options that you can use to analyze data over geography.

Time-series per point-location (latitude-longitude)
