Creating maps & charts

In this section are listed and documented all features related to the creation of advanced maps or charts, with either the Map Builder or the Chart Builder. Both are available in the front office of an Opendatasoft domain.


Map and Chart Builders must not be mistaken with the Map and Analyze visualizations.

  • The Map and Chart Builders can be used to cross data, that is, to create a map/chart with data from more than one datasets) and allow to display more than one data layer on one same map/chart.

  • On the contrary, the Map and Analyze visualizations -the tabs available when exploring a dataset- can only be used to discover, explore, and analyze that dataset. It is not possible to use the visualization tabs to cross data and create advanced maps/charts with advanced display configurations. Nor is it possible to save those creations.
