SOCR Help Pages - SOCR Cartography and Spatial Statistics

Introduction

The SOCR Cartography and Spatial Statistics Applet provides an interactive and dynamic visualization of spatial, cartographic and GIS data.


How to use the SOCR Motion Charts?

After the applet is loaded, click on one of the demo buttons (here we use the "Demo US Election" as example). A set of shape file will be loaded and drawn as background map, a data file is also loaded. Then the "Graph" tab will be bring to the front, a map of US will be shown in green and one set of data is shown as black square. Move mouse over the map slowly, info about the county or the data will popup.

Click "Data" tab, bring the data table to the front view, the first 2 columns are X/Y coordinates.

Click "Mapping" tab, all columns in the data table will be listed for mapping except the first 2 columns. The default drawing format is "Black_square", click "Apply This Layer" will put this column of data on the map, you can also choose the "ApplyAllData" button from the top toolbar to draw all data columns. For more color/shape/shadow choice, you can click on the "Color" pull down list to see other options: Color_palette(for single color choice), or Color_Theming(color coded for value).

When color_palette is chosen, a popup window will be visible, you can choose color by click on the color squares, and choose "Attribute"(Raw, Normalized, Quartite, Threshold), "Shape"(Square, Triangle,Circle), "Shadow"(on/off), also a text box for you to enter the threshold value.

When color_theming is chosen, a popup window will be visible, check "Enable color theming" first to make your choice visible. You can choose "Attribute"(Raw, Normalized, Quartite, Threshold), "Shape"(Square, Triangle,Circle), "Shadow"(on/off), also a text box for you to enter the threshold value.
