Map Charts can be plotted by selecting a column of latitude points and a column of longitude points in that order. Map Charts currently supports latitude longitude points, as well as GeoJSON data. For latitude longitude points, Options for plotting in Points, Bubbles, Heatmaps, and Clusters are available in the Chart Format tab.
Start by selecting all the latitudes and longitudes of users in the Bay Area (with zip codes starting with "94"):

It is possible to zoom in and out of the map by scrolling over it. The "Save Map Position" button will save the chart at the current level of zoom.

The "Series Settings" tab allows users to select the additional non-latitude, non-longitude columns to segment by.
Now, the resulting chart displays both colors:
Users can specify the plotting types of each segment by editing the "Series Type" options. Any Series Types specified here will overwrite the Map Type specified in the "Series Settings" tab. Different types can be mixed and matched on a single chart.
