Spotfire: Position Data on Map Charts with Geocoding or Coordinates

Posted on Updated on

There are two methods for our coordinates to appear on the map chart.

  1. Giving the coordinates using Longitude and Latitude values
  2. Using Geocoding

Using the Longitude and Latitude values for mapping

2. Using Geocoding

Use the map layer setting in “My Data” to use geocoding data (a Spotfire feature) by “City”

Automatic geocoding automatically adds three data columns from data table and uses US cities for mapping
