5.3.1 Geo USPTO (SDB Data)
The file 'usptoInfluenza.csv' was generated with an SDB search for patents containing the term "Influenza", and was heavily modified to produce a simple geographic table. Load it using 'File > Load'' and following this path: 'yoursci2directory/sampledata/geo/usptoInfluenza.csv" and then select "Standard csv format." See the data format in Figure 5.37 (left). Once loaded, select the dataset in the Data Manager and run 'Visualization > Geospatial > Geo Map (Circle Annotations)' using the parameters in Figure 5.37 (right). The tool will output a PostScript visualization which can be viewed using GhostView (see section 2.4 Saving Visualizations For Publication and Figure 5.38).

There are two available size scaling options, "Linear" and "Logarithmic". We recommend using logarithmic scaling for larger datasets.
