Excel Maps

The first video explains how to create a map based on geographical data. The example uses data from four European country. The tutor mentions how to change the layout, colour and style of the map. The Map feature is part of the Charts group and complements it very well.

3D Maps

When you use the 3D map feature you need an Internet connection for it to work. You also require geographical data so that the tool can plot the map. You create a series of tours, these tour will play along a timeline if you have date related data selected as shown in the video. If you are happy with the end product you have the option to save the tour as a video and then email or share it with colleagues. There are possibilities to create more complex tours by adding extra layers with additional animations.
