The Vue Interactive Maps control is a powerful and the best data visualization widget, which is used to visualize data as a map. You can represent statistical data of a particular geographical area. By using the maps control, visualize various maps like sales map, political boundaries map, weather map, electoral map, route map, travel tracker, and much more.
Bind GeoJSON data to the maps to render any geometric shape in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) for powerful data visualization of shapes. For example, you can render world map or US map and customize it to the desired look using built-in options in the Vue Maps control. You can also add any number of layers to the maps.
Built-in support for external geospatial imagery services, such as Bing maps and OpenStreetMap, is used to visualize satellite, aerial, and street maps, or other kinds of imagery tiles without any external shape inputs. Apart from Bing maps and OpenStreetMap, you can also render maps from various map providers, for example, Google Maps. By using these external services, the map data can be located easily.
Using sublayer, you can create a map with multiple geometric layers in a single view. For example, render additional geographic features of a country such as rivers, valleys, and more as a sublayer. You can also drill each layer.
You can denote a place with symbols or mark messages at the desired latitude and longitude of a location on a map using markers. For example, you can indicate a particular place on the US map using a balloon marker shape. Place any HTML element as a marker and also add multiple markers to the map.
Data labels on the maps provide identification for the shapes by displaying their names. Trim or hide the labels at intersections with other labels and if they exceed shape bounds.
Create a simple Vue map with bubbles to denote some additional information about shapes such as population density, land area, and more. Bubbles are rendered with various magnitudes and colors based on the underlying data values of the shape.
You can denote flight route or ship route on a geographic map between two places with navigation lines. It also acts as the connector line that links points on a map. The navigation lines can also be curved.
Categorize the shapes on a map by customizing their color based on the underlying value. The Vue Maps control supports two types of color mapping, range color mapping and equal color mapping.
You can apply colors to the shapes by comparing their value with a desired numeric range. For example, apply colors to the states in the US based on population density.
Differentiate a shape’s fill based on its underlying value and color, using equal color mapping. For example, apply colors to the states in the US based on a winning candidate.
You can change the opacity of the shapes by comparing their value with a desired numeric range. Minimum and maximum opacity of the shapes can be customized
You can apply colors to the shape from a gradient by comparing their value with a desired numeric range. Any number of colors can be specified for creating the gradient.
You can use legends to provide valuable information for interpreting the map with various colors, shapes, or other identifiers based on data and application needs. Interactive Vue Maps control supports two types of legends: Default and interactive.
Zoom the map for close-up analysis by pinching the map, scrolling the mouse wheel, clicking the shapes, or by using zooming toolbar; and pan the map for easy navigation across regions. You can also change the zoom level of the initial rendering.
Displays the details about the shape value through the tooltip by hovering the mouse over the shape. Similarly, the tooltip is also displayed for markers and bubbles on a map.
You can drill-down the rendered maps to display a different shape data located on another layer. For example, in the initial layer you can render the world map and on clicking a particular continent, render it separately on another layer.
Select a particular shape on mouse click and highlight on mouse hover to bring the center of attraction over other shapes on a map.
Create a map with custom shapes by rendering your own GeoJSON data to indicate building infrastructure, points of interest, flight/bus seat arrangement, cricket stadium, and more useful information.
Display any HTML element as an annotation at a specific point of interest on a map. For example, place a direction compass image on the map using annotation. You can also add multiple annotations to a map.
You can change the projection of the default rendering map based on your need. The Vue Maps control supports various types of projections namely, Mercator, Rectangular, Miller, Eckert3, Eckert5, Eckert6, and Winkel3.
Add title and subtitle to visualize additional information on Maps. You can also customize the font and alignment of the title and subtitle on a map.
Customize the look and feel of a map by changing the fill color, background, border, and opacity of shapes. Almost all the elements in the Maps are customizable. The Vue Maps control also provides built-in palettes with customizable options, by default.
Export or print the rendered Vue Maps to save a local copy for further use.
The interactive maps control also supports touch interactions.
All the features of Maps will work on touch devices with zero configuration. Use the touch features such as tooltip, drill-down, selection, highlight, pinch zooming, single tap zoom, and double tap zoom without any customization.
You can view Maps control on various devices. Also hide specific elements in the maps for particular screen sizes by making very minimal changes in the map events.
You can render Maps component in all the modern browsers.
