A map chart is used to display items against a background that is frequently, but not necessarily, geographical. A map chart with markers is used in the example below to present the markers in a geographical or spatial context. A map chart can also be used to display information that is not geographical in nature. For example, a list of names can be mapped onto a chart where each name is represented by a marker.
Map charts are often used in geographic information systems (GIS) to show relationships between items located in different places. A common use for map charts is to visualize the locations of hazards such as toxic chemicals in the environment. Map charts are also used to show the impact that changes in one variable will have on another. For example, a map showing oil reserves under different climate change scenarios could be used by policymakers to determine future resource needs.
Maps are very useful tools for visualizing data, and map charts are no exception. They can help readers understand large amounts of information quickly and easily. Additionally, they provide a flexible way to communicate results without being constrained by rigid graphics. For these reasons, map charts are valuable tools for scientists who need to convey complex information to others.
