Assigning Data

First, I need to drag the choropleth map widget from the “Relationship” section of the widget menu onto my dashboard. Then, I am going to resize it by dragging its edges so that it will be easy to read. This is what my choropleth map widget looks like before I have assigned data to it.

I would like my widget to display population data for the continent of South America, and now that I have moved the widget to my dashboard, I can assign data to it. First, I will click the “Settings” icon in the upper right corner of the widget.

Next, I will click the “Properties” tab and change the widget’s name from “ChloroplethMap1” to “South America Population Data.”

Finally, I will click the “Assign Data” tab. I know that I want my widget to display the population of each country in South America, so I will drag the “Population” field to the “Values” box and the “Country” field to the “Shapes” box.

My widget now shows a color-coded map of South America, and if I hover over a particular country, I can view its population data.
