Education Series Week 8
View state, county, city, and zip level constituent densities.
Yesterday, we talked about our Choropleth Map and what it represents. If you missed it, you can read about it on our Introduction Series.
Using Donor Dossier’s Choropleth or Heat Map is easy! In either a Standard Search or an Advanced Search, enter your search terms, press Search, and at the bottom of the search results will be our Standard Map.To turn on the choropleth map, press the map button at the top right of the map. This will convert the standard map to a chorpleth map.
You should now see the state level choropleth map. Each state that a constituent is located in will be highlighted in blue. To view result information about each state, click on the state you would like to view. Under the map button, at the top right corner, result information will appear:
- Percentage of results
- State name
- Count of records in that state (60 our of 1,234)
As you zoom into the map, the map will then automatically convert the state level choropleth map to county level; if you zoom in further, city level will automatically appear, and then, again, for zip code level. Result information is available for each level on the choropleth.
To turn off choropleth, click the same map button in the top right corner of the map. This will turn the Standard Map on again.
P.S. If you have any questions, just send us a quick note to firstname.lastname@example.org
