Create a map

Creating custom maps has never been easier. Spotzi’s interface allows you to add points, lines, and polygons to every map — both manually and via the use of an external file (such as a KML). Simply click to add a new point to your map or upload an Excel file with a list of the locations you’d like to visualize. You can then gain detailed insights into any of these points, lines, and polygons with the use of our insightful dashboards.

Step-by-step explanation

3. Press the OPEN MAP button to start adding points, lines or polygons. Ensure you create a new layer for each type of object (i.e a layer for points must be separate from your polygon layer).

7. If you’re unsatisfied with the location of any of your features you can simply drag and drop your point, line or polygon to a new spot on your map.

Keep in mind that you can only add one feature type per layer; this means that you can add points to a layer with existing points on it, but must create a new layer to begin adding lines or polygons to your map.
