Change all markers in California to Yellow in a US Map

Bulk edits of map information has a “Copy Changes” feature. Select multiple rows, make a change to one row, and then click on “Copy Changes” to make the same change to all the selected rows.
For example, suppose we have a US map of locations in different states and we want to color all the markers in California to Yellow.
On your map, click on the Bulk Edits -> Markers menu item (this requires a paid subscription).

Bulk Edit menu item
Bulk Edit of Markers

This opens up a new tab in the¬†browser with an edit grid for all the locations on the map. Sort this grid using the “State” column, and select all rows from California. Change the “Marker” cell of one row to “Yellow” and hit “Copy Changes”. The change is propagated to all the selected rows. Pressing “Save Changes” will commit these changes.

Re-Color Map Markers

To change the color of a set of markers from one color to another, use the Bulk Edits -> Re-color Markers menu item. You must be a paid subscriber to use this function.

This will bring up a small dialog, that asks you to pick the original color and the new color. At this time, you can also change the map legend from the old color to the new color, by checking the box for “Also, change map legend”.

Region improvements and pricing

We’ve made it easier to specify color and boundaries, when you add or update a geographical or geometrical region on your map. Instead of specifying a color number and opacity, you can now select a color from a color picker and use an opacity slider.

With this change, we are also limiting the number of regions you can add per map depending on your subscription level as follows:

  • Basic: 5 regions per map
  • Professional: 10 regions per map
  • Professional Publisher: 15 regions per map
  • Enterprise: Unlimited regions per map

Remove local business listings from maps

Google Maps often display local business listings. When you are searching for local businesses, this can be a useful feature. At other times, however, the business pointers can clutter the map, or worst show competitor’s business on your map!
For example, in the following map of a block around our offices, several businesses are listed, such as one Indian and one Mexican restaurant. If you are a paid subscriber, ZeeMaps will allow you to remove these business listings from your map.

Use the Map -> Settings menu to get the Map Settings page, and then select the Map Display tab to change the map display settings.
Map Settings menu
Map Settings Menu item

Within that, check the box that says “Remove local business listings from map”:
Remove local business listings from map
Checkbox to remove local business listings from map

Once you have set this checkbox, now if you go back to the map, the local businesses will no longer show:
No Local Business listings in map
Local Business Listings Removed from Map

The business listings will not show on your map as long as you have signed-up for one of our paid plans.
