Mapping is hard? We’re here to prove you otherwise.
If you have data for regions, you can create a map. It’s that simple.
Preparing geo data is often the hardest part of mapping. In Datawrapper, you can use more than 3000 basemaps of administrative regions, like US states, ZIP Codes in New York or electoral districts in Berlin.
Can’t find what you’re looking for? Use our GeoJSON upload, or contact us at email@example.com. Our map expert Anna will happily create a new basemap for you and our collection.
This map here is a bit special: It’s a choropleth cartogram, in which the squares are sized according to a country’s population.
Like all our choropleth maps, it looks great on desktop devices, tablets, and mobile phones, by default. And it’s interactive: Click on the zoom button or hover over the squares to see the underlying data as tooltips – or turn all interactivity off in our map editor.
Colors are the main ingredients of any choropleth map – and hard to get right. Datawrapper keeps it simple. Choose any of the carefully prepared default color palettes, and you’re ready to publish.
Want more control? Change things like the colors of your gradients or the interpolation in your continuous scales to make regional patterns visible.
Adding annotations to your choropleth map is as easy as clicking a button.
You can even add long explanations without worrying about mobile readers: They’ll see your annotations as a numbered list below the map.
