If you need to build a map where only some states of the US display, you can use this plugin to achieve that. You’ll simply need to select the normal US map and then use the option to specify which regions you want to use.
In this example we specified some of the states in the east cost as the only regions to display on the map.
This technique works for any country and you can specify any of the available regions on the chosen map. You can also do the opposite and specify which regions to exclude.
And the good news is that this feature is part of the free version!
