Evidence maps are created through systematic searching of a defined topic area. The goal of an evidence map is to facilitate evidence-based decision making and identify gaps in knowledge and future research needs. This tutorial will demonstrate how to create an interactive evidence map in Data Studio. We will create a visualization similar to this published map on acupuncture and pain management using made up data.
