Markers Map with Interactive Legend

In this example we have a map of the world with markers showing their title and an interactive legend.

The above map uses the following features:

  • There are 2 maps overlaid, to have the 2 sets of markers
  • Each map, in the markers tab has the option to display in the legend
  • The auto labels for the markers is also enabled, to display the title below the marker
  • In the base map, the auto legend option is enabled, with the Interactive > Highlight option enabled
  • Some custom CSS were added to create the hover animation

Live Filter and Clustered Markers

  • All
  • Beta
  • Alpha

With the Pro version you can display a live filter, that will show/hide markers from different maps that can be clustered.

In this example we see how the live filter behaves when the markers from the different maps are clustered. The markers will only create clusters with other markers from the same map. When we change the filter, the zoom will also reset.

Island of Ireland map divided by counties

Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. But there are plenty of cases where it makes sense to represent the island without those geopolical borders and display the historical counties.

We used a custom JSON source to build this map of Ireland (source) divided by historical counties and added some markers to populate the map.

Live filter on map with vector icons

The challenge today was to replicate an existing map that a client already had online in a website, but needed more flexibility. Requirements:

For this project we used the overlay technique, which allows us to display multiple maps in the same base map and filter them if necessary either with a legend or an external live filter. So we create 4 maps:

  • Map for International Projects
  • Map for National Projects
  • Map for Biennials
  • Base map, with the 3 maps above in overlay

This is the result:

  • All
  • Bienals
  • International Projects
  • Nacional Projects

It’s worth noting also that we used the option to load content from a raw data source, a specific CSV format. This allowed us to import the data from the already existing map.

If you want to replicate a specific map let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
