Chart Viewer

Use the Chart Viewer template to display bar charts, line charts, pie charts, histograms, and scatterplots to complement a map. Include multiple charts to view with a map or side by side with other charts for comparison. Up to three charts can be viewed side by side or stacked, but you can access and view all the charts that are authored in the map. (To learn more, see the blog article about using Chart Viewer.)


Choose this template to create an app for use cases such as the following examples:

  • Present a bar chart representing average property value by county for a given area.
  • Compare charts based on multiple population statistics in a dataset.
  • Display an interactive scatterplot based on two values in a dataset along with an essential set of map exploration tools.

Data requirements

The Chart Viewer app requires a map with at least one chart configured.

The following list includes key settings and capabilities that you can configure for this app:
