Global Launch Estimates is a type of chart which is used to render the locations of various companies grouped by the associated year. Locations are nothing but countries of different regions such as AfME, Asia, Europe, Lat-Am and NA. It supports two types of views, one is World map view and another one is Regional Map view. As the name suggests world map will render world map with highlighting all the countries from data based on the Year field. The Regional map view renders only the countries of particular region with zoom-in version of that region. It also renders highlight notes which is a description / writeup about the region optionally. Each country or location has a hyperlink which will point to any document related to that location. Both the views supports filtering by regions. Each location is highlighted by a color which is based on the Launch year of that location. Both the views supports legend by Year and Color.
