  1. User Defined Choropleth

    Choropleths are limited to predefined regions right now. There should be a way to define your own geographic regions to fit the needs of your business.

    EG. Pacific NW may be Alaska, Washington, Oregon for one company, and include Idaho for another company. Or to define neighborhoods in a city.

  2. Custom Geospatial map

    At this point there are only a few maps available for geospatial data, it would be nice if there is a possibility to add a custom map, in my use-case I want a map of Belgium with all the towns. I understand that it is not possible to add all the maps in the world, so maybe an adding a custom SVG map through an upload functionality could be an option to allow all maps from the world

  3. Percentile Chart / Cumulative-Distribution-Function

    Often times just looking at just the average or min/max of the data might be misleading and understanding the distribution of the data is as important as the aggregated value itself. The Percentile Chart is useful for such scenarios as it helps to see the shape of the distribution, such as how big the tail is at either end, along with the value.

    My proposal is to integrate a percentile chart similar to what you find here : https://powerbi.microsoft.com/de-de/blog/visual-awesomeness-unlocked-percentile-chart/
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cumulative_distribution_function

    Thanks for the great work, I realy like mongo charts, keep going!

  4. Custom Sort Heatmap Axis

    The user has no control over the sort of the heatmap axis. It would be nice to have the option to sort hours of the day e.g. that it is ascending from bottom to top instead of the default.

  5. Resample based on zoom level for a chart

    I understand why you have a limit on geo scatter (it would be nice if it is more than 1,000) but the bigger need is to return the data based on the zoom level. For example in our use case we have over 1,000,000 geo tagged points in a region. When you zoom in to a neighborhood there will be 500-600. The request is to get all those data points when zoomed in so we have a complete view vs. random sample.

  6. Title of each chart with Tooltip option

    Hover over title option with Tooltip that displays help text instead of subtitle description which takes up too much space.

    For Dashboards, Tooltip feature is especially convenient to allow end users to understand how the metric is calculated with a dynamic popover that displays on hover

  9. MongoDB chart Auto-Update

    Mongodb Charts needs to have dynamic update options using change_streams, so the charts are updated automatically, whenever a new document is inserted into a collection or an existing document is updated in a collection

  10. Add an option for a "moving averages" trendline to scatter splots

    I have data that doesn't follow a linear or polynominal shape and is more cyclical. I'd like to have another trend line type called "moving average" that plots the average of a window of data.

  11. Moving Bubble charts

    I'd like to see the ability within MongoDB charts to have moving bubble charts as my data is updated. Similar to https://flowingdata.com/2019/03/26/relationship-stages/

  12. Average (trend) lines for a data series

    I have many charts with series where the y-axis values (Revenue $$) bounce up and down along the x-axis (Date). At times, it's difficult to tell if the values are trending up or down. It would be nice to be able to configure a trendline that shows an average.

  13. Add error bars to bar/line charts

    I have a dataset containing measurements, along with errors - e.g.
    {
    value: 187.12,
    error: 12.51
    }

    It would be quite useful to be able to plot the error values on a line chart so that we can see the uncertainty as well as the measured value.

  14. Candle stick charts

    Since continuous line charts do not allow iterating through more than 50k documents, it would be great to have simple option to merge/ aggregate data e.g., into candle sticks for time ranges (per day, per week etc.)

  15. Community-generated visualization types

    My suggestion is to allow for community-created visualization plugins, also called custom visualizations.
    This type of functionality is offered on popular visualization tools like Grafana, MS Power BI and Google Data Studio.
    In this way, you can leverage the power of the community to create new visuals for your Charts tool.

  16. Support Rendering GeoJSON on a Map

    I have GeoJSON in my collection that is storing trip data as GeoJSON LineStrings for each trip and I simply want to render the trips on a map. Basically having Charts just draw the lines for each trip. Nice to have would be defining attributes to name them and color code them. I would expect this to apply to all GeoJSON types available.

  17. Axis custom styling

    It'd be great to be able to change the font size, color, and also the orientation of the labels.
    Setting a maximum and minimum font size would be awesome.

  18. Capability to add additional labels to Charts

    Dear Charts Team,

    I need to add additional labels to a Geospatial Scatter Chart such that I can display additional information about each datapoint.

    The need arises, as we want to create a report, that allows the user to get an overview of the single data points as well as relevant metadata without the need to lookup this information in an additional table / connect to the Cluster and investigate the rest of the necessary information.

    The project that I am building is an internal project thus I am using the sample Airbnb dataset to make an example.

    I have…

  19. Add US Counties/Parishes/Boroughs to Choropleth Shape Schemes

    We could use a little more granularity on the Choropleth Geospatial Chart. We'd like to be able to look at a single state, and denote values of each of the counties, parishes, or boroughs of that state.

    This feature is currently available for the UK, but not for the US.

  20. Grouped stacked bar chart

    A bar chart that can be both clustered and stacked simultaneously expands substantially the analytical possibilities (as it allows the visualisation of additional fields/variables). It seems to me that such a chart cannot be generated in the current version.

    Congrats to the MongoDB team for developing Charts. It is an extremely useful resource.
