World Map Visualization

The world map visualization groups the Signals into countries and visualizes the results on a world map. It allows you to easily view where in the world the current topic is being talked about.

Want to find out where the Signals of your search field are concentrated? Where they are growing the most? Then use the world map visualization, which uses the country of publication to group the Signals.

Selecting Countries

Clicking on a country in the world map will add it to the global filter. Clicking on the country again will remove the selection.

The filter affects the other visualizations and also the list of Signals, showing only those Signals that belong to the chosen countries.

Configuring the World Map

There are different configuration possibilities for the World Map:

Growth Indicators: The growth indicators aim to answer the question in which country the Signals are growing or shrinking the most. For each country, the system considers the development of Signals over time during the time period defined for the search field and perform a simple linear regression. It then uses the magnitude and sign of the growth coefficient to orientate and color the arrow for each country.

Bubbles: The bubble size represents the number of Signals belonging to a country. ⚠️ Note that the bubbles are sized according to a logarithmic scale.

Shading: The shading represents the same thing as the bubbles - the darker a country is shaded, the more Signals have been assigned to that country. 

Pie Charts: The pie charts option will transform each bubble into a pie chart, showing the split of Signals by another property - currently this is fixed to be the document type.
