Hover over block Categories reveals an eye symbol of Visualize icon. Click on the icon to visualise the value of individual categories of the selected phenomenon on the map. Objects (dots, areas, grids or lines) in the map get colorized. The color indicates the prevailing category of phenomenon. 

Hover over objects in map displays tooltip. It helps you to understand the value of selected indicator and also its categories. There can be just one category valid for an object, but also more categories with different values of indicator. In this case the objects get colorized by prevailing category.

When you interact with categories in the block, e.g. switch off any category or select only one category, it means that you filter out the data. It is not possible to turn off e.g. all areas that have the most customers who pick up orders, but you can see the distribution just of customers who use delivery. 

If you can't see the eye icon in a block Categories it means that the type of data isn't suitable to be displayed as quality in the map.


The size of dots in the map and in the legend indicates the values of indicator, color indicates the categories. 

Areas and Grids

Areas and grids can't change their size. In this case color indicates categories and transparency of color indicates value of the phenomenon.


Width of lines indicates the values of indicator, the categories are displayed as colors.


Legend in bottom left corner helps you to understand the value of indicator. Block Categories and tooltip help you to read the categories of objects.


You can display up to 9 colours and keep the map easy to read. That means if you have more than 9 categories in block Categories the 10th and others will be grey. By default, the colour are assigned in following order: purple, orange, lime, red, blue, brown, turquoise, pink, green, and grey for other categories in the block. It is not possible to change the colours directly in the CleverMaps platform. It can be set up in metadata using CleverMaps Shell.
