Basic Map Style: Select the map style you would like to use for your project from the list. These will also be dependent upon your Social Pinpoint Subscription type.

Positioning

This will save the initial default position of the map, users are able to zoom in/out and pan around the map. You can set the min/max zoom levels so users don’t zoom too far in or out of the project. Make sure your project area is clearly viewable in this default position and the initial zoom makes sense for the scale of the project.

Search Location: Search for the street address or suburb/town for your project.

Centre Latitude: Coordinates generated from the previewer or manually enter the desired position/ setting

Centre Longitude: Coordinates generated from the previewer or manually enter the desired position/ setting

Initial Zoom: Coordinates generated from the previewer or manually enter the desired position/ setting

Min zoom: Sets the minimum zoom level allowed

Max zoom: Sets the maximum zoom level - this is useful if low-level detail is not required

Advanced

Enable Street view: allows user to go to Google Street view on a Comment Marker or Information Marker and view the area at street level.

Max Cluster Zoom: Zoom levels above this value will not cluster markers

Cluster Count: Clustering will begin when more than this number of markers are on the map

Max bounds ratio: Defines a limit of how far away from the initial area you can pan the basemap. e.g. a ratio of 0.5 means you can pan up to twice the distance away from the initial map extends. A value of 0 here disables this limit.

Non Geographic Map: You can enable this if you are displaying a custom image or a map that doesn't use latitude/longitude coordinates. This disables certain features such as address search and geolocate on the map.
