A Guide to Using this Visualization

This map uses a visualization platform called Tableau to display information.  We want your experience with Tableau to be good, so we have included some helpful tips for your reference.

If you hover the map, the toolbar shown below will show up in the top left corner.

The following icons are in the toolbar along with descriptions of what that tool does:

Search for a city, county, or state (because this search covers the whole globe, some smaller cities may not be searchable.
Zoom in (+) or out (-)
Return to the map to its default view and zoom level
Create a rectangle to zoom into a selected portion of the map
Select geographies on the map with a rectangle, circle, or a freehand region

Another way to make selections on the map is to click on the geographies. If you hold down the Ctrl key or the Command key on a Mac, you’ll be able to make multiple selections.

The summary tab will show all the data selected plus the calculated fields being summarized on-the-fly in the visualization. The full data tab will just show the selected data in its original form, without the calculated fields.
