Creating the Map
There are many systems and services available to post data to maps. To create our maps, we will use the free ZeeMaps web service. We prefer ZeeMaps for this purpose because it is a relatively straightforward prcess to create maps, yet we can create sophisticated, highly configurable maps that are rich with information and easy to post online.
We suggest going ahead and registering so you can save and manage every map you produce.
Simply press the Create link at the top of the web page to begin making the map.
A world map will appear, as well as a menu bar with several options.
Choose Advanced: Import CSV.
In the resulting upload window, click Browse to navigate to the CSV file you created. Click Open in the browser window to select the file. And then click Submit to upload the file to ZeeMaps.
A pink confirmation window should appear, listing each data type. A check box will appear next to data that ZeeMaps interprets to create the map. Other data that will appear in each mapped point will be listed as "entry property."
If you are satisfied, scroll down and click Submit, at the bottom of the window. If you are signed in, the web site will display a message saying that it is processing your data and a confirmation e-mail will be sent when it is complete. With a relatively small data set, the processing typically happens in a very short amount of time, on the order of a few minutes or even a few seconds.
When you receive the e-mail, you can click the enclosed link to go directly to the map. You map will also be visible in the My Maps section, which can be reached by pressing the link in the upper right corner.
