Use Side by side and Swipe maps

Social Explorer allows you to compare variables by showing them side by side and allowing you to swipe between them. You can compare two different variables, or compare the same variable across different time periods, even if the data are not on the same geography.

  1. At the bottom of the screen, click the map view icon .
  2. Select Side by side or Swipe

Both variables will be displayed in the tooltip on both maps. Only the variable in the left map will be displayed when the view is switched back to the single map view. 

Click the link icon at the top of the screen to lock the position of the side-by-side maps. As a result, both maps will zoom and pan in tandem. Click the double arrow icon to swap the maps.

Try using the Satellite view with the Swipe map for an enhanced experience that connects the data with real terrain.
