The map we are going to create has this url:
You can easily test every step yourself by copying the url and pasting it in the url bar of another browser tab or window.
Creating this map
In 3 simple steps we get to our final result:
- 1. Select a base map
- 2. Add areas and data
- 3. Color the areas using a color ramp
- 4. Finalize the map with some colors
1. Select a base map
2. Select the areas with data
We add the a-param with the area codes of the EU countries separated by | (pipe) and their contribution per country separated by : (colon).
3. Color the areas
We add colors to the countries by using a color ramp (rmp-param) to auto-generate a color for each country based on its contribution.
4. Finalize the map
We finalize the map by adding a color for the countries that were not selected and the borders.
