There are three geo charts that let you visualize geographical data in ThoughtSpot.

These geo charts show data on a map by location. There are three different types of geo charts. They are geo area, geo bubble, and geo heatmap charts. And these geo charts can display five types of geographical data, which are:
  • Country
  • State
  • County
  • Zipcode
  • Point (latitude/longitude)
Here is a table that shows which GeoType data can be displayed using which geo chart type.
