Before you can build a map chart, you must obtain a list of regions/sub-regions to which you'll map your data, providing the basis for generating map charts.

In Anaplan, you can Download Map Chart Regions and Codes for use with map charts, as *.CSV files. This downloads a *.ZIP file that contains multiple *.CSV files to your browser's Downloads location. The *.CSV contains the standard subdivisions and their respective codes for the region you require.

Once you've downloaded the map regions and codes, you need to create a list. This list corresponds to the regions that you want to base your map chart on. Then, import the *.CSV file that contains the relevant region codes.

  1. Once you've downloaded the map regions and codes, create appropriate lists and import the relevant *.CSV file.
  2. Create a module using your regions list.
  3. Pivot the grid to place regions on rows and line items on columns.

To configure your card:

  1. Select Configure map on a new card, or hover over your card and select Edit .
  2. On the Overview tab of the Card configuration panel, select a View to use as the data source, and select Update.
  3. You can enter a Title and Description for your card. You can also link the card's title to a page from the Link to a page dropdown.

    1. Choose the Region that corresponds to the area you'd like to visualize. 
    2. You can toggle Show only matched items right to display only the regions and subdivisions that match your source data.
