This article describes how to create a repeated icon pictograph that shows a proportion, like the below, based on a single numeric value:
A numeric value, an output containing a numeric value, or a variable that can be summed or averaged to yield a numeric value.
1. Go to Visualization > Pictographs > Repeated Icon.
2. Under Inputs > OUTPUT > Total icons set the number of total icons you want to include. In the example here, this has been set to 10.
3. Under Inputs > OUTPUT > Scale set the relative value of each icon. In this example, my number is 65 so each icon represents 10 units (i.e. 100/10).
4. Under Inputs > DATA SOURCE > Data source select Type or paste value. Options here will allow you to select values from other objects in your document, e.g. tables or variables.
5. Under Inputs > DATA SOURCE > Input data enter the value 65.
6. OPTIONAL: Under Format > ICONS > Icon select Heart.
7. OPTIONAL: Under Format > ICONS > Layout constrained by select Number of rows.
8. OPTIONAL: Under Format > ICONS > Number of rows enter the number 2 (for two rows of icons).
9. OPTIONAL: Under Format > ICONS deselect the option Hide base image.
10. OPTIONAL: Under Format > ICONS > Icon base color set the value for the unfilled part of the icons, in this example set to a medium grey.
11. OPTIONAL: Under Format > FILL COLOR > Default fill color to set the value for the filled part of the icons, in this example set to red.
