A short tutorial on how to make a map of any country or region in the world with MapChart, by using the Detailed continents maps and their useful features.

Can’t find the map page for a specific country? A short tutorial on how to take advantage of MapChart’s best features.

Time and again, I receive through the Feedback page the request to add new country-specific maps, that are not available under the ‘More Countries’ section.

While MapChart is constantly updated to include more country maps, there is already a way to make your own subdivisions map for any country in the world, by using the Detailed continents maps and their useful features.

For example, let’s say that I need to create a map showing Argentina and its provinces.

  • Since it is not available in the ‘More Countries’ section, I will be using the Detailed Americas map:
Screenshot of the Detailed Americas map page.
  • I will use the Isolate One or More Countries feature to isolate Argentina on the map:

Find Argentina’s abbreviation (AR) by hovering on any of its provinces on the map.
  • Now that all other countries have been hidden from the map, I can use the Zoom feature to zoom in and focus on Argentina:
Use the zoom tool to zoom in and move Argentina to the center of the map. For a full tutorial on the zoom tool, you can check the Tutorial page.
  • Finally, I color the map with the usual required steps and download it:

This way, you can create a map for any country in the Detailed continents map pages, which basically means any country in the world!

There is also the ability to make a map that focuses on a specific region, by isolating more than one countries with the Isolate One or More Countries feature. Here is an example map that shows the Southeast Asia region:

For this map, I used the Detailed Asia map page, where I inputted BN,ID,KH,LA,MY,MM,PH,SG,TH,TL,VN in the Isolate One or More Countries option.

Feel free to experiment with these tools and make your own map for any country or region in the world!
