Edit your map features

For each layer, you can add features which contain geometry and data properties to your map.

Map features consist of:

  • polygons
  • lines
  • points

Select a map and then a layer where you want to edit your map features. Click the pencil icon to bring up the feature options to begin editing. When you edit these features, you are editing the geometry and the data properties that comprise these features.

Multimedia URLs

Multimedia URLs can be added to interactive cards and viewed by hovering over a previously created point on the map. The URLs can point to videos or additional card information. A point can have multiple interactive cards, each being displayed below the others.

  • Multimedia content types can be audio, video, PDF document, or image
  • Any property with a multimedia URL in your data is previewed, and does not need to only use the name URL
  • If there is no property with a multimedia URL you can add a point, add a column using the data table, and make it viewable

All property fields that contain multimedia URLs will automatically show the multimedia file on the interactive cards. Just make sure that the URL’s property field appears above the line in the Cards section in the left panel. The URLs can point to images, audio clips, videos, PDFs or simply websites with additional card information.
