Geographic map – This map represents business data in one or more map layers of information (themes) that is tiled on a map. In order to work with a geographic map, you require a connection to a
MapViewerservice and, optionally, a
Thematic map – This map represents business data as patterns in shapes, areas, and markers. The good thing about a thematic map is that it doesn't require a connection of any kind as its focus is more on the data and not on actual maps.
In this recipe, we will use the
Thematic Map component to graphically display the number of employees in different regions. The model has been created for you in this recipe, so you can continue from the previous one or open the project directly by cloning the
DataOnMaps project from the Git repository.
