Map Chart

The “map” chart type displays a map using the Google Maps API. It accepts values in the form of addresses and renders them as pins on the map. This chart type can be useful for displaying values associated with regions or locations. However, it may be more beneficial to use Maps presentation style to allow for data interaction or Geo Chart Type instead.
