Add custom map fill patterns

Add custom map fill patterns


Customize your maps by editing your polygon fills with a specific pattern or image. This feature allows you to create maps with different polygon fills, but you can also create beautiful image maps with polygons that are filled with an image. Like this we made our Flags of the World map.

In the Spotzi Mapbuilder there are 2 ways to add a custom polygon pattern/image:

Adding a custom polygon fill for a whole layer


1. To add a custom polygon fill for a whole layer, go to the EDIT STYLING option.

Keep in mind!
The base color of the polygon fill is still there. So if your image has an opacity below 1 the base color of your polygon might affect your image. Do you want to see the image without any discoloration? Please make sure that your opacity is 1. 

Adding a custom polygon fill for separate polygons


1. To add a custom fill/pattern for a separate polygon, click the map feature you want to edit and press the EDIT STYLING button in the infowindow.
