Display markers to represent recorded data

    Placing markers on your map work
  1. Enable "Locations" feature.
  2. Enable "Markers" feature.
  3. Load your prepared data points. In this example: Major earthquakes since 1900 /magnitude 8 and greater/.
  4. Add more marker sets /2 for free accounts/ up to 12 for PRO accounts.
  5. Customize marker labels, if any are used.
  6. Customize marker symbols.
    Adding your prepared data points
  1. Select the data type you use.
    For Postal /ZIP/ Codes /USA and Canada/, IP addresses and Cities, a geolocation service is used to match your data.
    Geographic coordinates are always /found/ displayed.
    If the the geolocation service cannot match your data, please try to use latitude-longitude coordinates.
  2. Choose your data formating separator. TAB character is usually copied from Excel.
  3. Examples of how to format your data.
  4. Paste /enter/ you data here.
    If your data sets have numeric values, you'll have to apply a ratio to represent those values as pixel size.
    If you had the data set values 1000 and 500, you could multiply them with a 0.1 ratio to get symbol pixel sizes of 100 and 50.
    For the Major earthquakes data set you could subtract 7.5 from each recorded magnitude, then multiply by 10.
    The 9.5 magnitude earthquake /the largest recorded - Chile, 1960/05/22 19:11/ would get 200 pixel size, while the 8.0 magnitude earthquake /Michoacan, Mexico, 1985/09/19/ would get 60 pixel size.
  5. When you finished entering /editing/ your data, click this button to display it.
  6. Display the points already added to your marker set for editing.
  7. Clear /remove from map/ all points from the current marker set.
    Style your markers
  1. Refine the font for labels. Set font size zero /0/ to hide the labels.
  2. Choose from our library or upload your own marker symbol.
  3. Set the size in pixels for your markers. The points loaded with a size field /the 3rd/ won't be resized.
  4. "Centered" options means displaying the center of the marker on the exact coordinate.
    If not "Centered", the base /bottom/ of the symbol will be placed on the exact coordinate.
  5. Customize marker symbol style if you used an SVG shape.
    Add more Marker sets /up to 12/
  1. Load Points for an other set. In this example places on Earth considered "earthquake safe".
  2. Set the size in pixels for your markers. The points loaded with a size field /the 3rd/ won't be resized.
  3. Not "Centered" - the base /bottom/ of the symbol will be placed on the exact coordinate.
