As all highlighted regions in ZeeMaps, counties and zip codes regions have a boundary and fill, each of which can be customized for color, etc.

Once you’ve created a region, you can make changes to it by accessing your map as Admin and then click on a region to modify it. In the case of countries, states, counties, cities, or zip code, you can change the boundary and fill coloring at any time. For hand-drawn regions, you can also change the shape. For radius regions, you can additionally change the size and location.

For example, below is a map of Los Angeles with the famous 90210 (Beverly Hills) zip code highlighted.

The highlighted regions work both on the interactive maps and the static images, as shown in the image below.

    I’m trying to figure out if via API or a synced Google spreadsheet if I can add counties based strictly on a ‘State’ and ‘County’ entry. I have a registration form in Formstack that allows registrants to select their counties. This then creates a row in my google doc with just ‘state’ and ‘counties’ (counties are comma separated in one cell). Is it possible to have Zeemaps plot the counties from the comma separated cell?

    It will not let me highlight no more than five counties…

      Hi, the Basic (free) plan allows a maximum of five highlighted regions on any map. You’ll need to upgrade to an appropriate plan for more counties: Professional (10), Professional Publisher (25), or Enterprise (Unlimited).

      We’ve changed the menu slightly. Look under Additions -> Highlight Regions -> Zip (Post) Code Area -> US Zip Codes.

    Hi, we’re Enterprise Users and we need to crete Zip code area maps in the US, AU and UK. We do have about 20 000 Zip codes to upload.

    So how do I bulk-upload zip-code regions? (I can only find bulk-upload for markers)

    Thank you!

    Hello, if I were to purchase the Enterprise plan, would there be a way to enter zip code ranges to highlight. For example, could I type in that I want all zip codes between 20000-21499 and 22000-22399 (what some people call the “DC Area). If not, would I be able to create a quick list in MS Excel and copy/paste that list into a table?
