With this blog post I will build on my SAP Lumira extension of a choropleth map of Japan.
The extension can be downloaded here., and the following blog will cover it's use.
The background to the original extension is covered in my SCN blog
Custom Choropleth Maps with VizPacker
This blog and my extension was featured as a "Cool Example" in the SAP webinar here
SAP Lumira SDK - An Introduction and Cool Examples
My intentions for adding extra features/functionality to this extension is a way to try and build the best map *I* can. Emphasis on the "I" as I can't build the best map ever :) . Also it is a good example for me to learn more about D3 and making the map as user friendly as possible inside SAP Lumira.
A free copy of SAP Lumira can be downloaded from the main Lumira site http://saplumira.com/
I only use the free personal edition and all my examples are built on this free version.
I will be adding blog entries on a regular basis with added features or new ways of implementing the technical code for the map or for different countries.
I will be releasing with an update based on dates and the first of these being the 26th March 2014.
Japan Choropleth Map Update 1 - 26/03/2014
Custom Choropleth Map of Japan.
Download the code and the lookup table from here
The zip file contains two files,
Close SAP Lumira if it is already running.
Extract the downloaded VizPacker file "viz.ext.japanv1.zip" extension to the "extension" directory as shown in the screenshot
After the extension is extracted there should be the japanv1-bundle.js file in the directory structure as shown below.
Example using the Wikipedia data for the population of Japan by prefecture
Taking the first line of the actual data from the Wikipedia page. As you can see the prefecture name is in Japanese and romaji. My SAP Lumira map extension will be able to use these "Prefectures" and "Japanese" columns as attributes to create the choropleth map. The text file in the download contains all the possible attributes that can be used.
(Oct 1, 2010 to
Sep 30, 2011)
(Oct 1, 2010)
Example using the "Prefectures" column for the prefectures and the measure "Estimated Male Population" to create a map in SAP Lumira.
Using the "Prefecture" attribute from the wikipedia table (red arrow in the screenshot above) this attribute is in romaji and I have moved the mouse over Tōkyō-to and this is shown in the screen shot too.
Next example using the "Japanese" column for the prefectures and keeping the same measure "Estimated Male Population" to create a map in SAP Lumira.
