Can I display more than one place at a time on the map?
Yes. Here’s how:
- If the map pane isn’t currently displayed, click on the map icon in the GeodesiX toolbar to make the map pane appear
- In the map sheet dropdown, pick an empty worksheet (any old worksheet will do)
- When prompted if you want to create and Office Finder, click ‘yes’
- A new worksheet will be added to your workbook, containing a sample list, the capitals of the European Union
- During a few seconds, you will see the latitude and longitude fields being populated
- When they have all displayed, return to the map sheet dropdown and select the name of the worksheet that has just been created. A map of Europe will appear, with the countries’ flags on the capitals
- Click on the map to find the 5 nearest capitals. Hover over an orange line to see the distance
- Click on a flag to see details about the country
Take a moment to examine the formulas in the spreadsheet that was created for you. They illustrate how you can create maps with your own places, custom icons and popup texts.
