Publishing the Map

When you go to your map, it will probably be zoomed out to a global scale. You will have to zoom in by double-clicking or pressing the zoom scale on the left of the screen, while constantly dragging the target area to the middle of the screen.

You should also rename your map so it is easily identifiable. In the menu bar, click 

Advanced > Map > Name.

In the panel that pops up, type in the name you prefer and press Submit.

Whenever you return to ZeeMaps, you can open up any of your saved maps by clicking the My Maps link in the upper right corner of the window.

When viewing your map, you can click on a marker on the map. A window pops up featuring a thumbnail of the photo (click it to open a larger version), the Name that you input into the CSV file, and any other information you included.

A handy way to view this map is with the item list open. Simply press the small box with the double-arrow symbol to open the list. It displays each item in alphabetical order by Name.

If you want to add the map to your web site or blog, simply press the Publish link in the upper right corner of the browser window.

You will have several publishing options. We tend to use the IFrame window, which is highly configurable and produces a link you can copy and paste into your own web site or blog.

Note to Tech Tools Workshop participants:

After pasting your map's code into a blog posting, scroll to the bottom of the screen. Under Custom Functions, create a "full-width" key with a value of 1 (see below). This will enable the map to display at full size.
