Map charts: visualisation of statistical data on a background map – case study

Karol Król


Data visualizations take a variety of forms, from classic bar charts to three-dimensional presentations on globe maps. The purpose of this paper is a comparative analysis of selected techniques for visualizing statistical data on a background map. The exploratory tests were carried out to study the design possibilities of three software tools: Visualization: GeoChart, GIS and JavaScript and 3D Maps (MS Office), as well as the functionality and usability of applications created with them. In addition, selected technical attributes of the applications were measured, including the size and number of component files, loading time in the web browser window, as well as performance. It has been shown that the tested tools are predisposed to create data visualizations on administrative maps, that they have different design possibilities, that they differ in the degree of service advancement, and that they can also be useful in creating small visualizations, so-called “ad-hoc map”.
