You can do so much more than just change the style of your territories in Mapline. Get the most out of your data with incredible territory styling customizations–here’s a quick run-through.

FILL

Toggle the Static and Dynamic tabs to choose the type of coloring you want for your map pins.

STATIC COLORS

Set the fill color for the interior of your territory shape. Select from the available colors or click Custom and paste a hex code to assign your own custom colors.

Custom colors are saved in the color presets; to access them in the future, just click More >.

Select Randomize to assign random pin colors. Once assigned, colors remain static until the next time you click Randomize.

Adjust the opacity of your fill color to make your territories solid or see-through.

STATIC HEAT MAP

A static heat map is perfect for mapping areas that always stay the same, such as customer demographics, or projected sales by location.

Static heat maps are a fantastic way to visualize density within a radius around your pins.

This type of heat map is more for aesthetic purposes than for analyzing data.

DYNAMIC COLORS

Use Dynamic styling if you want your map territories to change color in real-time whenever your data changes. This is particularly useful for keeping track of team assignments or areas that are underperforming.

Toggle the gray Dynamic button to turn on Dynamic styling.

Colors: Add HTML color names or hex codes to your dataset to color-code a specific category. Mapline applies these colors to your territories.

Heatmap Data: Select a numeric column from your dataset (for example, sales numbers) to create a shaded heatmap based on that data.

Mapline auto-assigns heatmap colors to all the values in your dataset, ranging from minimum to maximum. Or, you choose a color range you want to use. Add additional color shades by clicking the + icon next to the rainbow bar. Drag the color dots left and right to adjust your colors.

Color Groups: When this is turned off, Mapline uses as many heatmap colors as it sees fit for your data. When it’s turned on, you specify how many colors you want in your heatmap.
