About geo charts


Explains what the feature is or what its benefits are to the user or customer.


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

These geo charts show data on a map by location. They are geo area, geo bubble, and geo heatmap charts. And these geo charts can display six types of geographical data, which are:
  • Country
  • State
  • County
  • Zipcode
  • Point (latitude/longitude)
  • Other sub-nation regions (for international countries)
    Note: In addition to the United States, ThoughtSpot also supports maps for the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, South Africa, and France.
Here is a table that shows which GeoType data can be displayed using which geo chart type.

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.

Restriction: Only the first 5,000 data points will be shown on a geo chart. If you need to increase this limit, please contact ThoughtSpot Support.
