As a short follow up on my previous post about using the Bing Map Office app for Excel – I tried to see if I could use it to plot growth and decline on the map.
And If you can live with a bubble with the same size and a small white stripe in bubble (pie) – it can be done.
Simply create a table with a column that has a value for the up and down in separate columns, and plot them.
Then in the settings for the map, you pick a green color for up and red for down.
And now you have an indicator for growing and declining areas.
Now lets hope that Bing adds more features to the app so we could have plot a bubble and vary the size after a specified value.
