The Dashboard Designer allows you to create three types of Geo Point maps.

  • The Geo Point Map dashboard item allows you to place callouts on the map using geographical coordinates.


  • The Bubble Map dashboard item allows you to place bubbles on the map. Each bubble can represent data using its weight and color.


  • The Pie Map dashboard item allows you to display pies on the map. Each pie visualizes the contribution of each value to the total.


To create the required Geo Point Map dashboard item, use the Geo Point Maps button in the Home ribbon tab.
