# Conditional Map and Plots

## Conditional Map and Plots

## Create and manipulate a conditional map

- Click on to open the conditional plot options.
- Select
**Map View**. - Specify three variables,
**x, y, and variable 1**.- The map displays
**variable 1**conditioned on the values of x and y. - You can manipulate the intervals of x and y.

- The map displays
- Click on the dots next to the numeric labels on the x and y axes.
- Move them to change the intervals that each plot cell reflects.
- Drag the horizontal and vertical bars that mark the boundaries of each plot to change the size of the plots.

**Troubleshooting & Tips**

- Condition a variable on East-West and North-South.
- Create a map with a continuous color ramp.
- The conditional map freezes after adding centroids.

## Create and manipulate conditional plots

- Click on to open the conditional plot options.
- Besides the map option, there are three conditional plots: Box Plot, Histogram, and Scatter Plot.
- For each conditional plot, you are asked to specify at least three variables,
**x, y, and variable****1**(plus**variable 2**for the scatter plot). - The plots display
**variable 1/ variable 2**conditioned on the values of x and y. - You can manipulate the intervals of x and y:
- Click on the dots next to the numeric labels on the x and y axes.
- Move them to change the intervals that each plot cell reflects.

- Drag the horizontal and vertical bars that mark the boundaries of each plot to change the size of the plots.

**Tips & Tricks**

- The conditional scatter plot requires a sufficient number of observations in each plot (e.g., a minimum of 20) to avoid large standard errors.
- A flat slope in the conditional scatter plot indicates no relationship between the values of the observations in the plot.
