WISCO Survey - Thematic Map Questions

Thematic Maps show the geographic distribution of survey data, displayed as color-coded areas on a map. Thematic Map questions accept only one response from a predetermined group of geographical choices.

Thematic map questions automatically add the text choices and related chart choices when the add button is clicked. Your preferences menu setting determines which map and set of text choices will be automatically added. If the United States was selected, the 50 states and the District of Columbia will be added. If Canada was pre-selected, the Canadian provinces and territories will be added. If Europe was pre-selected, the 38 European countries will be added. Enter the term AUTO for the first text choice to automatically fill all text choices. Leave all other choices blank. Some complimentary bonus maps may be included with WISCO Survey. For example, if a state map is selected, entering the term AUTO for the first text choice would automatically fill in an alphabetical list of counties for that state.
