Spotfire 6.0 mapping question. I'm pretty sure I had this actually work for me on one occasion, but cannot seem to replicate my efforts at all (Spotfire crashed on me unceremoniously shortly after I got it to do what I wanted, I presume because I had too much data being handled)

What I have is the following (superimposed on top of a map) - thousands of approximately 5 mile x 5 mile squares from a shape map which superimpose on top of the US map and are associated with data specific to that area (lets say, for the sake of brevity, average number of giraffes owned)

I also have a little table set up which is essentially a single row which contains two calculated columns "Latitude" and "Longitude" - both of which are controlled by user entry (text box entry --> document property --> calculated column value) which works absolutely perfectly for putting a little red X on the map in exactly the right position.

Now, what I am hoping is possible is that I can have the data from the square under the X populate my graphs through marking or such - given that the only link between my user entry and the underlying data is the long/lat tie in (and that this isn't a 1:1 relationship, but a 1:contained within shape relationship)

Is there any way to go about doing this? (I'm open to simple explanations of how to link everything up, or scripted solutions in IP)

Thanks
