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:
- Point (latitude/longitude)
Here is a table that shows which GeoType data can be displayed using which geo chart type.
Table 1. GeoTypes and their geo chart types
|GeoType ||Geo chart type ||Notes |
|Country ||Geo area (default), geo bubble, geo heatmap || |
|County ||Geo area (default), geo bubble, geo heatmap || |
- Only for counties in the United States.
|Point ||Geo bubble (default), geo heatmap || |

In order for data to be displayed using geo charts, your administrator must configure it as geographical data. If you are expecting to be able to get a map visualization, but it isn't available, contact your administrator so they can make the configuration.
