How to use GEOMAP map of shapes in design studio

Hello everyone.

Have you used GEOMAP of design studio?And have you used the shapes type?

I've used points/bubble/pie charts,but shapes. My customer want to use conditional formating in map,but I can't realize it. And now,they want to use shapes to realize hot maps , design studio can do it?

When I use points types,I create geojson file in,and upload it to service.Which work fine. However,when I use shapes,which work like this.

I have view follow message,but I still haven't solved it.

I also have found geojson file,but it just United State,whether it have china geojson file?

    2) A Google search resulted in the following link for China geoJSON files, including provinces:

    • Hi Jing,

      I was reffering to your screenshot. Where the whole map is red and your shape has no color. To fix that you need apply the steps mentioned in the blog you referenced already. They want you to invert the drawing order for the polygon dots.

      "By two conditions" you probably mean my second hint. The two data sources approach I mentioned to create the impression of conditional formatting.

      Kind regards

    Hello Jing,

    the out of the box map does not provide any conditional formatting capabilities. In case that is a critical feature for your, feel free to evaluate our maps, which do provide advanced conditional formatting capabilities out of the box.
