Edit cutpoints (set color values)

In shaded area maps or choropleths, data are displayed by classifying values into classes or cut points. The default cut points are determined by the data table being visualized. All variables in a table will use the same cut points in order to make them comperable. We preselect these values for each table based on algorithmic analysis and common sense, but you can customize them at any time.

Set custom cutpoints

  1. Click the map legend.
  2. Select Cutpoints

  1. Choose one of the available classification methods from the dropdown – or –
  2. Drag the sliders or click individual sliders to enter the exact numeric value. 
  3. Click Done.

When using one of the algorithmic methods for computing cut-points (like Jenks natural breaks or Quintiles), only the data that is visible on the map currently is considered. So these computations will depend on what's on the screen.
