We know you’ve been waiting long enough for….

Maps!

We’ve been waiting to get this out for some time. If you noticed there’s a new “map” icon in the Tools section, click on it or drag it into the canvas!

Maps is pretty simple to use, we have divided them into:

  1. North America
  2. USA
  3. South America
  4. Africa
  5. Europe
  6. Asia
  7. South East Asia
  8. Australia
  9. Oceania
  10. World Map

You can enter the values in the maps and those which are with 0 value will not show on the map. It’s pretty easy to work your way around the map. You can also easily customize border’s colors and the individual color of each map that you want.

Interactivity

You can mouse over any individual element of the map and the callout will contain the state/country together with the statistics that have been entered in X axis.

Have a play with it and let us know what you think.

What else is going on?

We are working on a couple of fixes on Internet Explorer and Safari in regards to the editor not working as well as distorted image exports. In the mean time, please use Chrome and Firefox.

Go check it out now.
