Hi Ilya, I was playing and I'll tried to make a map with country locations. I put the geocodes in a spreadsheet, but I'll get the message that the locations can't be calculated. What am I doing wrong.
Try now, I think I could fix it.
hi, thanks. What went wrong?
I am not yet sure why the bounding box couldn't be calculated, but I changed the app so that instead of crashing it is now simply showing the whole map.
I understand, thanks
The coords in your spreadsheet looked fine from the first sight
cool. just curious, what are you trying to visualize?
I try to visualize migration flows.
the data do not correspond with the figures in the map
e.g. 25 persons went from US to NL according to the data, but the maps says much more
sorry, I found it, I think
something with the use of a . instead of a ,
yes that can be difficult to find

It's striking how tiny the flows going to Europe are compared to the refugees going to neighboring countries
and the internally displaced people
That is a very nice map. Good that show the internally displaced people. I also see that it is possible to add more data to the sheet, which is nice
I simply used the additional columns to compute the sum count. They are currently not loaded to the app.
that is good to know
but I hope to add in the future some support for grouping and filtering by additional attributes, like here

Hi everyone! I'm trying to create a map of the bicycle flows of our bikesharing system in Kiel. I entered all the data and to me everything seems to be correct. But if I click on the link of the map no flows appear, I only see the shape of your beautiful planet. Could anybody check my data to see what's wrong?
Hi Phil! For some reason the properties sheet isn't correctly loaded. I will try to find the issue now.
Ok, it will work if you change the formatting of the property value for "flows.sheets" "2019" to "Plain text" (go to "Format" / "Number" / "Plain text" in the Google Sheets menu)
