Categorizing Markers in Bulk?

solved

(Louis Harry) #1

Hi there!

I’ve just begun creating my first map using MapHub online, which I have to say is an awesome product.

So far I have over 3800 points on the map interface and am hoping to add a few thousand more. I am, however, experiencing an issue with the categorizing of my large imports. The ability to categorize markers into groups is available but is there any chance of a bulk categorizing feature that lets you select a multitude of markers to place into a group?

Hi Louis,

I’ve just replied to your email, but if you’d like I can also reply here.

Hi Zsolt,

I too replied to your email.

Either or is great for me :slight_smile:

Waiting for Zsolt to respond to my email. I’ll share his response in this forum :slight_smile:

There are a couple of points which Louis raised.

  • He is planning to add 5000+ points to the map, which is not possible today, so I’ll raise the limit to 10000 items per map.
  • I’ll also make imports go into a new group, to help with the organisation.

jeez, I really want to see this map. Post your link once done.
I hope this does not end with a bad performance for all the other maps :wink:

Hi, I’ve implemented the needed changes!

  • I’ve raised the item limit to 10000
  • The imports will go to a new group called “Imported from …” I hope this’ll greatly simplify organising items.
  • This way if you want to undo the import, you can just delete the group.

@nico.vadoy don’t worry, I’ll never implement something which would make the performance worse!

Hi,

Batch setting colors and markers for groups is now implemented. I’ll add other functionality soon.


(Nico Vadøy) #11

OK, I tried to figure out how the batch coloring works, but I did not. :frowning:
So how do I use this?


(Zsolt Ero) #12

Click on a group and select a color. Like this:

Nice. well done.

This has now been implemented in MapHub, you can read more about it in the following blog post:

I implemented “Simplify map”, which turns markers into dots until a given zoom level. Can you test if it works for you? It’s in the Info panel.

That was a good idea, works great. I will leave it on for my map.

An other new tool for helping with bulk editing items has been added, the Multi-Select tool:
