The Graph Builder platform lets you adds color to create choropleth maps. A choropleth map shows statistical differences in a geographic area while maintaining the proportion of the statistical variable.

Drag a column containing geographic place-names, like countries, regions, states, or provinces, into the Map Shape zone and create a map. Then drag a column to the Color zone to color the map by that column. The categorical or continuous color theme selected in your Preferences is applied to each shape.
