Styles

 

Updates include new map styles. Scroll through various drawing styles for your data, like dot density maps or symbols defined by category and size. Try every style to find the best fit for your data. Styling your maps has never been easier.

Filter

 

You now have the ability to create a built-in filter for your maps. After clicking the filter button, it’s time to create a new expression. In this example we’ve filtered our daytime population data set to only show daytime populations that are at least 6,167,445, which yields a range of cities across the nation. But we can also adjust this number on the fly with an easy slider. After sliding to adjust for a larger number, we can immediately see the associated change occur in the map.
