First, I need to drag the Bing Maps widget from the “Relationship” section of the widget menu to my dashboard. Then, I am going to resize the widget by dragging its edges so that it will be easy to read.
I would like my widget to display population data for the year 2020 from the available data in my sample Excel file. Now that I have moved the widget to my dashboard, I can assign data to it.
To assign data to my widget, I need to click the “Settings” button in the upper right corner of the widget. Then, I will click the “Assign Data” tab.
I immediately see two columns. In the left column, I can select different fields called “Measures” and “Dimensions.” I can drag these fields to the “Marker Latitude,” “Marker Longitude,” “Column,” “Marker Tooltip,” and “Marker Image” boxes in the right column.
To display population data for the available countries in my sample file, I need to drag the “Latitude” field to the “Marker Latitude” box, the “Longitude” field to the “Marker Longitude” box, and the “Population_2020”and “Country” fields to the “Marker Tooltip” box.
