Maptive: Customizing Map Markers

Hi and welcome to Maptive. In this video we’re going to show you how to customize your map markers. There’s several ways to go about doing this, depending on what you’re looking to do. So to change all of the markers on your map, go to map settings, here in the gears on the top left, and we’re going to go to map markers and graphics. You can use the pull down or if you’re more visual like i am we’re going to scroll down towards the bottom and go to customize all markers. Ignore my pictures at the top for a moment these are the markers that come pre-loaded in Maptive. Each one of those has 25 different colors to choose from. You also have the ability to upload your own custom markers. The maximum size of those custom markers is 70 by 70 pixels. If your picture or marker is larger than that it will shrink it down to that maximum size. Once you’ve made your choices, you can simply click save at the bottom. If you’re wanting to change the colors of your markers based on a particular group, you’ll have seen this in our grouping tool video, but you’ll go to the grouping tool and group by one of the columns in your data, and then from there, you can then customize each group’s markers simply by clicking on the gray marker to the right of each group. By clicking on this you see we come right back to that customize group markers the same thing that we saw earlier lastly and we don’t necessarily recommend this as we’ve got the grouping tool set up for you. You do have the capability of editing individual markers if you wish but again better to use the grouping tool in that scenario. If you have any questions at all please never hesitate to reach out to us here at Maptive. Thank you for watching have a great day.
