Adjusting your custom map upload

Once you've picked a map from your computer, it's time to adjust some of its parameters. Choose the map's ID, set the group name, and pick the label.

  • ID: The ID you choose will be used to map your data. Switch between the available options to divide your map into individual areas or grouped areas.
  • Group name: This selection will be used to arrange your data entries into groups. Hover the mouse cursor over the preview to see the group names.
  • Label: Labels are displayed in the tooltips that appear when hovering over a map. You can set the label to display the same value as the ID or pick another option. They can also be adjusted later on.

Once you're all set, select Import. You and your team will be able to access the map from the Custom tab under Add map. To learn more about map editing, read the article on customizing your map in Prezi Design.
