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:
- I will use the
Isolate One or More Countriesfeature to isolate Argentina on the map:
- Now that all other countries have been hidden from the map, I can use the
Zoomfeature to zoom in and focus on Argentina:
- 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!
