You can highlight regions on your map in ZeeMaps to get a PostCode Area map for Great Britain.
To highlight post code areas, use the Additions -> Highlight Regions -> GB Postal Areas on your map.
Then, select one or more postal areas, color their boundary and fill and hit Submit. That should highlight the postal areas on your map.
For example, here’s a map with the London North and London West highlighted:
The map location search capability in ZeeMaps allows you to search your map based on marker field values and geography, e.g., you can search for all “Gold” customers in California in a customer map on ZeeMaps.
First, use the View -> Search menu item on your map to bring up a search dialog as shown below:
How to Search the Map Locations
Section A of the search dialog is for limiting the search results to values in your marker fields. First, this input in this section allows you to select the field to search. Next, this drop-down is for selecting the predicate (e.g. contains, equals, etc.). Third, this input box is for the value to search. You can click on the AND or OR buttons to add up to four clauses for searching marker fields. Example: Name equals Jill
Section B allows you to combine your field search by distance or geography. Therefore, you can specify an address and a distance to limit the search results within a certain distance of your address or map location. Now, if you have highlighted regions in your map, e.g., the state of California, then you can limit the search results by clicking on the highlighted region. Normally search results are limited to 200 entries.
You can increase or decrease this number in Section C.
Then, to search the map locations, hit the Search button. You should see the status line at the bottom right of the map change. Now, it will reflect the number of entries that matched your search.
Export Matched Map Locations
Lastly, if you want to get a list of entries that matched your map location search and put them in a spreadsheet, you can hit the “Export CSV” button instead of the “Search” button. Normally, only map Admins are allowed to export the search results as CSV.
If you have any issues opening the .csv in excel try following these steps.
In case you want your members or viewers to also be able to export search results, use the Map -> Settings menu item and then the Map Security tab to change the default settings.
With ZeeMaps, you can build a Zip Code Finder or County maps. By highlighting certain Zip Codes (in the US) and counties (in US, France and UK). You can style the highlighted area by picking the color and the region, size, color and opacity of the boundary. But with a recent upgrade, the regions will now be automatically labeled with their number or name on your Zip Code Finder or County map. The labels should help in easily identifying the county or zip code. For example, the following map shows a zip code finder map for Los Angeles. But with Beverly Hills (90210) highlighted. (For more information on highlighting regions, please see our Help section.)
To avoid cluttering of the map, the labels will show only at higher zoom levels. Some Regains such as zip codes, are automatically labeled. There is a limit of 175 regions for the labeling. If your map has more than 175 regions, then they will not be labeled. So we restrict the number of labels to ensure that the map is displayed in reasonable time. Let us know if you’d like to see maps with larger number of regions labeled. As shown below if some highlighted regains have zip codes if will put them in for you.

ZeeMaps makes it easy to add concentric circles on a radius map.
To add your concentric circles, create your radius map, and click on the menu item Highlight Regions -> Circles.
This should give you a dialog to specify your circles center, and enter multiple radiuses (separated by commas or spaces) for the circle in miles. Customize the fill and boundary color specifications and Submit. For example, in the following dialog, we have specified a set of five concentric circles centered around Paris.
To specify the center for the circles, you can either select the location by clicking on the map or enter the geographical coordinates as latitude and longitude (decimal format).
We did this on our demonstration map, Visiting Austin, by creating concentric circles around the hotel that someone might be staying in. The interactive map resulting from this, is shown below:
Once you have added concentric circles, you can modify them by clicking on any of the circle. You can change the radius of the clicked circle by dragging one of the empty dots on the circumference. To modify the center of all the circles, drag the center of the clicked circle. Finally, you can change the fill or boundary of all the circles by changing them on the clicked circle.
The circles will show on print images as well. For example, here’s a small PNG image from the map that we created above.
