Using Builder for Creating Data-driven Point Maps
Just a few weeks ago we started giving access to the new CARTO Builder to people on our early access list. There have been some articles and positive reactions about it (Thanks!) so we wanted to share with you some things you can do with CARTO Builder.
The new Builder focuses on making your maps more actionable. It is an all-in-one data visualization data exploration tool and analysis workflow in an easy-to-use and carefully made user interface.
Even though the UI is quite different from the Editor creating a visualization like a Bubble map --a map where you change the size of the different points depending on a value-- is as easy as before. You just need to have a numeric column in your data and change the size of the different points depending on the value. To do so:
- Click on the Layer name
- Click on the Style tab
- Click on the point-size number
- Click on BY VALUE
- Select your desired column
If you want to customize your map further you can change the quantification method for your ramp in the same component.
