Third and fourth step

You probably know by now how to create a clickable map by using these tools. When you have made all of your choices, from colours to borders, and filled the clickable states with data and links, go ahead and click “Generate Map Script”.

Maps – Step 3.

After you have clicked the “Generate Map Script” button, wait a few seconds and a window with your code will pop up.

Mark all of the text and copy it. Go to your CMS-editor or texteditor and paste the code exactly where you want your clickable map to appear.

In that pop-up window you will also be able to pay for a premium version of your map. With premium you will be able to go back and edit your map. Also, with the premium version of the Create a Clickable Map you will also get rid of the attribution link which is located beneath the map:

With the freebie version you will not be able to go back and edit the map you have in use on your website, and you will be stuck with a link that is not optional. The price is $9,99 and you only pay once for your map (prices July 2016).

Alternative pop-up window:

If you still want to use the freebie version, which is excellent, choose the text-link on the bottom “No thanks. Please give me the embed code.”.

Maps – Step 4.

Simple, effective and free to use to create your very own clickable map! In order to use it on, for example, a personal website the freebie version is most sufficient. If you want to use it in a more professional way though, it might be a good idea to get the premium version so you will be able to edit your map. Without the attribution link your map will be more effective and trustworthy.
