How to create basic maps?

In order to create a basic map, click on the Create new button in the upper right corner and choose the Chart option. Once in the editor, make sure you have the Map tab option checked (below the Type of chart dropdown). You can create a chart with a line chart and a map, notice that in the chart viewer, in the lower left corner are the chart and map options. If you only want the map chart, uncheck the Chart tab option.

Note that selecting the Map tab option opens a new tab called Map that allows you to make changes. The most important is Unmatched Entities, which allows you to match entities that have not been recognized by the editor.

You can only make a map with a single variable that has data for different countries or provinces. For example, the only variable may be GDP and there are different data for the countries. It is important that the country in question is in the country field. If in the Data tab it appears as undefined, a change must be made in the entities of the dataset.
