Multivariate maps encode two or more data variables concurrently into a single symbolization mechanism to reveal relationships between variables that might not otherwise be apparent (UCGIS Body of Knowledge, https://gistbok.ucgis.org/bok-topics/multivariate-mapping). Framed within a discussion of the questions that can be answered with different types and numbers of variables, we demonstrate that the multivariate mapping methods available in ArcGIS Online may seem complicated but are in fact simple. Our discussions and demonstrations balance this ease of mapping with cautionary guidance on how to take an informed and balanced approach to multivariate map design by weighing information density against visual complexity (BoK).
