Note: If your file is not available in the Data Source section, check that you have updated concepts Latitude and Longitude or Geometry in your dataset.

Details On Click allows to select multiple columns to display in the legend when a user of your visualization clicks on an item on your layer

Display type allows to define the representation of your layer: a single icon, icons based on the values ​​of a field, circles or even the geometries present in the dataset used for your layer.

Color Settings allows you to set the colors used by your layer.
You can use a single color, colors based on values ​​in an interval, or based on values ​​in a set. Single color can be set in configuration.
When working with colors based on values ​​within a range, you have three palette type options: Gradient Between Different Colors, Gradient Same Color Tone, or Specific Colors.
The Field containing values allows you to define the numeric column represented by the colors.
You can then define intervals of the same size, by quantiles or in manual adjustment.

Each frame represents a layer
