- Click ‘Color code map’ on Map Business Online toolbar.
- On the first page select a layer to color code: territory layer, ZIP codes, counties, or states. In the example below we select counties. Click ‘Next’.
- On the second page choose data for color-coding: supplied demographics or data from a plotted dataset (your business data). With your business data you can color-code map by count of customers or business locations, by average or total value of sales or another business variable per geography (state, county, ZIP code, etc) or territory. You can exclude empty values for text data or negative/positive/zero values for numeric data. There is also the option to use unique values for numeric data.
Select number of color groups and then set min and max values and color for each group. In the example below counties with median household income in $11,528 - $36,120 range are assigned light green color.
You may have a map area with data not falling into any color group. In Map Business Online it is possible to control such map area display. In the example below counties with household income outside of any specified income range will draw with white fill.
