PINS

Generate pins from your spreadsheet data in just a few seconds. Copy, paste, and BOOM! You have new map pins.

ADD PINS FROM A NEW DATASET

Create a new dataset directly from your map.

DATASET NAME

Once saved, your dataset is always accessible from the Datsets Library. The name you choose here is the name you’ll see in the library later.

PASTE YOUR SPREADSHEET DATA

Use CTRL + A and CTRL + C to copy all the data in your spreadsheet.

Then, use CTRL + V to paste the data into Mapline.

Don’t worry about formatting anything. Mapline automatically cleans your data, even if you have blank cells or bad data.

Before you paste your data, just make sure your spreadsheet includes location information and has column headers.

ADD PINS FROM DATASETS

Pull location data directly from your saved datasets in Mapline. Or, add a new dataset by selecting the blue Add New Dataset button at the bottom of the screen.

Use the search bar to find your datasets even faster!

ADD PINS FROM VIEWS

Pull location data directly from your saved Views in Mapline. Or, add a new View by selecting the blue Add New View button at the bottom of the screen.

Use the search bar to find the right View(s) even faster!

The data you can add to your map is determined by your View settings. The dataset owner has control over these settings.

DROP PINS ONE-BY-ONE

Need to customize your pins even further? Or maybe you just need to add a few new locations that weren’t in your original dataset?

Just click the point(s) on your map that need a pin, and BOOM! You’ve got additional locations.

Pins you drop one-at-a-time will not be included in your original dataset unless you add them manually.
