Export list from geographical search on your map

The 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.

Use the View -> Search menu item on your map to bring up a search dialog as shown below:

Search Dialog
Search Dialog

Section A of the search dialog is for limiting the search results to values in your marker fields. The first input in this section allows you to select the field to search, the next drop-down is for selecting the predicate, and third 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.

Section B allows you to combine your field search by distance or geography. You can specify an address and a distance to limit the search results within a certain distance of your address or location. 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.

To search the map, hit the Search button. You should see the status line at the bottom right of the map change to reflect the number of entries that matched your search.

If you want to get a list of entries that matched your 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. 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.

Geocoded Latitude, Longitude in exported map data CSV file

ZeeMaps supports exporting of map data of markers (pins) using the View -> Export CSV, or Map -> Save As CSV menu options.

We used to output the latitude, longitude of each location so that you can use that to re-upload your data, with possible changes, quickly. Starting today, we are no longer exporting the latitude, longitude data, to comply with some of our geocoding service providers requirements.

Instead of the latitude, longitude columns, you will see a “Location Code” column in the exported CSV file. If you want to re-upload this data to ZeeMaps at anytime, do not modify or remove data from this column. If you do not need to upload your data to ZeeMaps, you can safely remove this column from your spreadsheet.

When you upload data to a ZeeMap, rows that have a Location Code column, (or a combination of latitude, longitude), will not be counted towards your upload credits.
