Iberian Peninsula Map

The Pro version of the plugin allows you to combine different maps, so you could have maps of countries divided by regions combined with their neighbouring countries. In this example we create a map of both Portugal and Spain and combine it in a single map, using the overlay feature.

In this particular example, since both countries have islands that are far from the mainland, the map seems a bit zoomed out. If you only need to display the mainland regions, you could setup a different initial zoom.

Using Custom Maps

The plugin allows you to use custom geoJSON files to create your maps. I have created a custom map for the Iberian Peninsula map using QGIS software and moved the islands closer to the mainland and merged both maps together. I hosted the source file on github so anyone case use them. This is the resulting map below.

This representation of the map has the advantage of having the islands closer and therefore the viewport for map doesn’t make the mainland portion so zoomed out. The disadvantage is that the coordinates for the locations of the islands are not the correct ones and therefore you would need to use different coordinates if you need to add markers.
