plots the points pti styled according to the values vali.


uses a collection of points pti from pts with corresponding values vali from val.


uses the visual encoding enc to represent the values vali in the plot.


plots the locations and values from data.

Basic Examples  (5)

Points are shown using different colors for numeric values:

Multiple numeric values are displayed as plots:

Use size to represent the values associated with the points:

Plot spatial point data:

Plot geospatial data:

Scope  (14)

Data  (8)

Use a list of location-value rules:

Use grouped locations and values:

The values can contain quantities:

Use a quantity array for grouped values:

The keys in an association are used as the locations:

Use locations taken from geographic entities:

Use general geographic locations:

SpatialPointData objects include both location and values:

Encodings  (6)

Different values are mapped to different visual encodings:

Use color to encode the second value and size for the third:

Use a continuous set of colors:

Create pie charts from part of the sets of values:

Create bar charts from part of the sets of values:

Images and other visual values can be displayed directly:

Options  (53)

AspectRatio  (3)

Generic data uses a square aspect ratio by default:

Specify a different aspect ratio for the plot:

The aspect ratio for geographic data is determined by the map projection and geo range:

BubbleSizes  (3)

Bubble sizes are determined automatically:

Use named sets of sizes:

Specify the scaled bubble sizes for the smallest and largest values:

ColorFunction  (3)

Colors are computed using scaled values:

Color with a named color scheme:

Color with an arbitrary function:

ColorFunctionScaling  (2)

By default, arguments to the color function are scaled to be between 0 and 1:

Use unscaled values instead:

Frame  (2)

Generic data uses a frame by default:

Use axes instead of a frame:

FrameLabel  (3)

Generic data uses a frame by default:

Turn off the frame:

Use axes instead of a frame:

FrameStyle  (2)

Generic data uses a frame by default:

Specify a color for the frame:

GeoBackground  (3)

Geographic locations are shown on a default map background:

Use a satellite map for the background:

Use a relief map based on elevation instead:

GeoGridLines  (3)

Maps do not include lines of latitude and longitude by default:

Automatically choose which lines of latitude and longitude to include:

Specify the distance between lines of latitude and longitude:

GeoGridLinesStyle  (2)

Latitude and longitude lines are styled automatically:

Specify a color for the grid lines:

GeoProjection  (3)

Map projections are chosen automatically:

Use the Mercator projection for the map:

Use the Albers projection for the map:

GeoRange  (3)

The map region is chosen automatically:

Show a map of the entire world:

Show a map of the contiguous United States:

GeoScaleBar  (2)

Include scale bars for the map:

Include only metric distances:

GridLines  (3)

Enable grid lines on the plot:

Use horizontal grid lines only:

Specify which grid lines to include:

GridLinesStyle  (1)

Specify the style used by grid lines:

LabelingSize  (2)

The size of objects is determined automatically:

Use LabelingSize to change the size:

Specify the size of images used as labels:

LabelStyle  (3)

Label styles are chosen automatically:

Change the color of all labels in a plot:

Change the font and font size of the labels:

PlotRange  (2)

The range of values is computed automatically:

Specify the range to use:

PlotStyle  (3)

Styles are computed automatically:

Specify the size of points to use:

Specify colors to use for different groups in an encoding:

PlotTheme  (3)

Specify a theme for the plot:

Combine themes:

Turn off the grid lines normally used by the theme:

ScalingFunctions  (2)

Specify scaling functions to use on each axis:

Use a custom scale on the axis:
