You can use Microsoft’s Map Chart to compare values and show categories across geographical regions. The map chart works with geographical regions. This means your data should have

  1. Countries
  2. Regions
  3. States
  4. Counties
  5. Postal codes

Note: This feature is only available if you have an Office 365 subscription. If you are an Office 365 subscriber, make sure you have the latest version of Office.

Microsoft Office Master Instructor
I train corporate clients in Microsoft Office Excel, PowerPoint, Word, and Outlook. When I'm not training, I blog about technology and create training videos on YouTube. I currently have over 240 technology videos available. Most of the videos I've created come from questions asked during MS Office training.
