You can open your map by single clicking the name, double clicking anywhere on the row, or by single clicking on the row and clicking the “Open” button. If you don’t have a map created, click on the “Add New Items” button. Then select, “New Map” and give it a name.
2. CLICK ON THE DATASET
In the sidebar on the left side of your screen, right-click on the name of the dataset that contains the pins you want to add images to. You can also hover over the name of the dataset and then click the three orange lines to the right of the name.
3. CLICK “VIEW DATA”
In the menu that opens, click “View Data” to view the dataset.
4. ADD A NEW COLUMN
When viewing the dataset, right-click on the empty space to the right of your column headings and click “Add Column.” This is the column in which you will add the image address for each pin.
5. RENAME THE NEW COLUMN
If you prefer, you can rename this column by right-clicking on the column header and clicking “Rename.”
6. FIND AND COPY THE IMAGE ADDRESS
In order to insert an image inside a pin bubble, the image needs to be publicly on a web page. Go to the location of this image, right click on the image, and click “Copy image address.” Make sure that you get the URL address for the image and NOT the URL for the entire web page.
Always make sure that you follow all copyright laws and only use images that you have uploaded yourself or that you have permission to use.
7. INSERT URL IN NEW COLUMN
Return to your dataset within Mapline. In the new column that you added previously, find the pin for which you would like to add your image, and insert the URL address that you copied for the image in the appropriate cell.
8. Ensure the file is a .jpg or a .png
At the end of the URL address for the image, make sure the file tyle is a .jpg or a .png. These are the types of images that Mapline can read.
9. CLICK ON YOUR PIN TO OPEN THE PIN BUBBLE
The image has now been added to the pin bubble. Exit out of the dataset by clicking the blue “X” in the top right corner. Click on the pin you added the image to, and you should see the image in that pin bubble.
