This interactive map of LA, marking the boundaries of the LA-LA land, illustrates ZeeMaps capability to highlight cities in the United States.
The map was created in less than 2 seconds using the following steps:
- Create a New Map
- Use Additions -> Highlight Regions menu item to get a dialog for highlighting regions
- Select United States for the country, California for the State and Los Angeles for the city in the resulting dialog. Customize the boundary and fill colors.
If we want a static map of LA, instead of an interactive map, ZeeMaps makes it easy to get images of this map in PNG or PDF format. Use the Print or Share -> PNG/PDF Image menu item on your map to get an image in PNG or PDF format. You’ll need to play around with the image size and the map area to include in the image. Due to the necessity of preserving the aspect ratio, etc., the area that you select to render in the image may not be the exact image that you get.
For example, here’s an image in Satellite mode:
Similarly, we can get a regular map image:
Try out ZeeMaps for yourself. There are many interesting images that you can generate by highlighting places and regions on maps.
