Image headers


Do you want your infowindow to display an image when a map feature is clicked? In the Spotzi Mapbuilder this is possible by adding an image header to your infowindow. In this example we will add an image of the Sheraton Times Square in New York to our map.

In this tutorial we will show you how to add an image header to an infowindow and how to change the image header in an infowindow.

Adding an Image Header to a Map

Add an image to the infowindow

To display an image in the infowindow you first have to add a column to the table that belongs to the map. This column is used to save the image URL. After that you can enable the image header in the map.
