Create a Map using FusionCharts

FusionCharts Suite XT — the industry's most comprehensive JavaScript charting solution — is all about easing the whole process of data visualization through charts.

In this page, we'll see how to install FusionCharts library and all the other dependencies on your system and render a map using Plain JavaScript.

Installation

Install FusionCharts using any of the following steps:

To install the fusioncharts package via npm run the command below:

    $ npm install fusioncharts

To install the FusionCharts Suite follow the steps below:
  1. Include the FusionCharts JavaScript files from CDN.
  2. Include the FusionCharts map renderer.
  3. Include the map definition file.
  4. Include the FusionCharts theme file to apply style to the charts.
The code is shown below:

<head>
    <!-- Step 1 - Including the fusioncharts core library -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.fusioncharts.com/fusioncharts/latest/fusioncharts.js"></script>
    <!-- Step 2 - Including the map renderer file -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.fusioncharts.com/fusioncharts/latest/fusioncharts.maps.js "></script>
    <!-- Step 3 - Including the map definition file -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.fusioncharts.com/fusioncharts/latest/fusioncharts.world.js"></script>
    <!-- Step 4 - Including the fusion theme -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.fusioncharts.com/fusioncharts/latest/fusioncharts.theme.fusion.js"></script>
</head>

To install the FusionCharts Suite follow the steps below:
  1. Include the FusionCharts JavaScript files, which can be downloaded from here.
  2. Include the FusionCharts map renderer.
  3. Include the map definition file.
  4. Include the FusionCharts theme file to apply style to the charts.
The code is shown below:

<head>
    <!-- Step 1 - Including the fusioncharts core library -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="path/to/local/fusioncharts.js"></script>
    <!-- Step 2 - Including the map renderer file -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="path/to/local/fusioncharts.maps.js "></script>

</head>

That completes the installation of FusionCharts Suite.

Create you First map

In this section, we will create a visualization using the World Map showing the average annual population growth.

FusionCharts will load here..

The data for this chart is represented in the table below:

State Entity Name Value
North America NA 82
South America SA 2.04
Asia AS 1.78
Europe EU 40
Africa AF 2.58
Australia AU 1.30

Convert tabular data into JSON format

Now that you have the tabular data ready, it's time to convert it into JSON format, as FusionCharts accepts data in JSON or XML format.

In the above table, the column Entity Name represents the geographical entities represented in the map, whose full names are given in the State column.

However, when you convert the data into a format (JSON or XML) supported by FusionCharts, the entities are denoted by the id key in the data object.

For any map visualization, it is important to provide the correct value for the id keys. For example, if you want to denote Africa, the value for the corresponding id must be AF and not AFR.

We have a detailed Map Specification Sheetsfor all the maps that can be rendered using FusionCharts, where you can find the correct id of the maps you want to create.

In this example, we will use the JSON format, as shown below:

{
    // Map Configuration
    "chart": {
            "caption": "Average Annual Population Growth",
            "subcaption": " 1955-2015",
            "numbersuffix": "%",
            "includevalueinlabels": "1",
            "labelsepchar": ": ",
            "entityFillHoverColor": "#FFF9C4",
            "theme": "fusion"
    },
    // Aesthetics; ranges synced with the slider
    "colorrange": {
        "minvalue": "0",
        "code": "#FFE0B2",
        "gradient": "1",
        "color": [{
            "minvalue": "0.5",
            "maxvalue": "1.0",
            "color": "#FFD74D"
        }, {
            "minvalue": "1.0",
            "maxvalue": "2.0",
            "color": "#FB8C00"
        }, {
            "minvalue": "2.0",
            "maxvalue": "3.0",
            "color": "#E65100"
        }]
    },
    // Source data as JSON --> id represents countries of world.
    "data": [{
        "id": "NA",
        "value": ".82",
        "showLabel": "1"
    }, {
        "id": "SA",
        "value": "2.04",
        "showLabel": "1"
    }, {
        "id": "AS",
        "value": "1.78",
        "showLabel": "1"
    }, {
        "id": "EU",
        "value": ".40",
        "showLabel": "1"
    }, {
        "id": "AF",
        "value": "2.58",
        "showLabel": "1"
    }, {
        "id": "AU",
        "value": "1.30",
        "showLabel": "1"
    }]
}

In the above JSON data:

  • Create the chart object to define the elements of the map.

  • Create the colorRange array to set the color associated with the specific range of values.

  • Specify minValue and maxValue within the color array under the colorRange array.

  • Create the data array to define the id of the continents and their corresponding values along with configurations.

The chart object and the respective arrays contain a set of key-value pairs known as attributes. These attributes are used to set the functional and cosmetic properties of the map.

Now that you have converted the tabular data to JSON format, let's learn how to render the map.

Render the map

To render the map follow the steps below:

  1. Include the fusioncharts library.

  2. Include the FusionMaps renderer.

  3. Include the map definition file.

  4. Include the FusionCharts theme file to apply style to the charts.

  5. Add the map renderer, map definition and the theme as a dependency to the core.

  6. Store the chart configurations as a JSON object. In this JSON object:

    • Set the map type as world. Each map is represented with a unique map alias. For World map, the alias is world. Find the complete list of map types with their respective alias here.

    • Set the width and height (in pixels).

    • Set the dataFormat as json.

    • Embed the json data as the value of the dataSource.

  7. Add a container (instance) for the chart.

The consolidated code is shown below:

The fusioncharts package for npm can now be used in two different ways:
  • FusionCharts ES module
  • FusionCharts CJS module
The steps to render a map for both the modules are shown below:

ES6


// Include the core fusioncharts file from core  -
import FusionCharts from 'fusioncharts/core';

// Include the map files
import FusionMaps from 'fusioncharts/maps';
import World from 'fusioncharts/maps/es/fusioncharts.world';

// Include the fusion theme
import FusionTheme from 'fusioncharts/themes/es/fusioncharts.theme.fusion'

// Add the map and the theme as dependency
// E.g. FusionCharts.addDep(ChartType)
FusionCharts.addDep(FusionMaps);
FusionCharts.addDep(World);
FusionCharts.addDep(FusionTheme);

// Create an Instance with map options
var annualPopulation =   new  FusionCharts({
    type: 'world', // Map type
    renderAt: 'chart-container', // Container
    width: '800', // Width of the chart
    height: '550', // Height of the chart
    dataFormat: 'json', // Data Type
    renderAt:'chart-container', //container where the chart will render
    dataSource: {
        // Map Configuration
        "chart": {
            "caption": "Average Annual Population Growth",
            "subcaption": " 1955-2015",
            "numbersuffix": "%",
            "includevalueinlabels": "1",

            }, {
                "minvalue": "1.0",
                "maxvalue": "2.0",

                "color": "#E65100"
            }]
        },
        // Source data as JSON --> id represents countries of world.
        "data": [{
            "id": "NA",
            "value": ".82",
            "showLabel": "1"
        }, {
            "id": "SA",
            "value": "2.04",
            "showLabel": "1"
        }, {
            "id": "AS",
            "value": "1.78",
            "showLabel": "1"
        }, {
            "id": "EU",
            "value": ".40",
            "showLabel": "1"
        }, {
            "id": "AF",
            "value": "2.58",
            "showLabel": "1"

            "value": "1.30",
            "showLabel": "1"

That's it! Your first map using Plain JavaScript is ready.

Render other maps

To reduce the size of the package FusionCharts comes with only two maps, i.e., the World map and the USA map. However, FusionCharts provide 1600+ maps for you to explore. Download the map files separately if you want to save them locally.

Let's create a map of California to show the "Web visits for a particular month" as shown below:

To render the above map, first install fusionmaps package which contains all the map definition files as shown below:

$ npm install fusionmaps

After installing fusionmaps package, the code to render the map of California is:

The fusioncharts package for npm can now be used in two different ways:
  • FusionCharts ES module
  • FusionCharts CJS module
The steps to render a map for both the modules are shown below:

ES6


// Include the core fusioncharts file from core  -
import FusionCharts from 'fusioncharts/core';

// Include the map files
import FusionMaps from 'fusioncharts/maps';
import California from 'fusionmaps/maps/es/fusioncharts.california';
// Include the fusion theme
import FusionTheme from 'fusioncharts/themes/es/fusioncharts.theme.fusion'

// Add the map as dependency
// E.g. FusionCharts.addDep(ChartType)
FusionCharts.addDep(FusionMaps);
FusionCharts.addDep(California);
FusionCharts.addDep(FusionTheme);

// Create an Instance with map options

To use any other map (except World and USA) from the 1600+ maps, download the map definition files, then copy those map files to your current maps folder.
The map definition files are named in the fusioncharts.[MAP_ALIAS].js format, where MAP_ALIAS represents the country, state or region name.

Problem rendering the chart?

In case there is an error, and you are unable to see the chart, check for the following:

  • If you are getting a JavaScript error on your page, check your browser console for the exact error and fix accordingly. If you're unable to solve it, click here to get in touch with our support team.

  • If the chart does not show up at all, but there are no JavaScript errors, check if the FusionCharts Suite XT JavaScript library has loaded correctly. You can use developer tools within your browser to see if fusioncharts.js was loaded.

  • If you get a Loading Data or Error in loading data message, check whether your JSON data structure is correct, or there are conflicts related to quotation marks in your code.
