TechTip: GPS Mode of the Geo Map Chart: Generate Professional-Grade Charts in Your Programs

In the previous TechTip, I explained what the Geo Chart API can do in Location Name Mode. Now, I'll discuss this API's GPS Mode and share some insights on the best ways to configure the chart's options.

The previously presented Location Name Mode is very useful when the data that is being presented refers to countries or parts of a country, because the location is not (nor does it intend to be) very accurate. The most accurate way to pinpoint a location using this API is by using that location's GPS coordinates. That's exactly what GPS Mode allows.
