Dot map

A dot map displays the geographic distribution of a phenomena, where each observation is represented as a geopositioned point.

There are two ways to create a map in Scimago Graphica:

1. Link a geographic variable (Country) to 'unit' and in ‘Marks → Layout’ select 'map'.

or instead:

2. Link a quantitative variable (latitude) to the Y-axis, link a quantitative variable (longitude) to the X-axis, and in ‘Marks → Layout’ select 'map'.

To create a point map, under mark type select disks or circles.
