    An exploratory data analysis tool termed the comap is introduced. This is essentially a geographical variant of the coplot , an exploratory graphical method to investigate the rela- tionship between a pair of variables conditioned on a third variable (and perhaps also a fourth). In the comap, the Ærst pair of variables represent geographical location, and the graphical technique is adapted to reØect this. After the concept of the comap is discussed and an example is given, computational aspects are considered. The paper concludes with a brief discussion.
