Creating Map Charts In Mac Numbers

Sometimes it is useful to have bar charts where each bar is placed at a spot on a map or graphic. You can do that in Numbers, even though there is no special chart type for it. You just need to get creative.

    hey Gary, I see under the Format>Shapes and Lines it has Unite Shapes, which you use here. However in the Arrange box on the right hand side of the screen, it has Group. Is there a difference between the two commands? thx

    nick: Yes. Group will take the two shapes and lock them together so they move together. But they are still two separate shapes. You can even set a different color for each one. Unite will merge the two shapes to create a new shape combining the lines. You then have a single shape. Play with each one to see how they work.
