New Feature: Different Colored Markers / Grouping

As of last night I’ve added the ability for map markers to be colored based on a “Group” field. You can create up to 6 different values for the Group field and each will display in a different color. A legend will be added below the map that shows the description of each group and the color of the markers in that group.

The colors are: orange, blue, green, purple, red, and yellow.

You can enable this feature by selecting a “Group By” column when creating your map. If you do not wish to group by a certain field, do not include a “Group” column in your source data and/or select “Don’t Group” in the Map Fields section.

For awhile now people have been asking for a way to change marker color. I think this is the most straightforward way to allow maps with different categories of markers. Here is an example map showing multiple groupings:
