Hide Categories by Default

We've had a ton of requests for this one.

You can now, finally, hide categories by default. So if you want your map to start out with one out of the twenty categories on your map displayed, simply hide all the other categories and click "Save Default View". Every time you come back the categories will still be hidden.

You can also generate links to a view of your map with only certain categories displayed. Simply hide the categories that you want hidden and then click "Link to this map". The bottom link will have instructions in the link for hiding the categories.

So give a try. From all the requests we've received for this enhancement we hope this will be a nice little win for a lot of people.



  • Hey Jared thanks for this, it's a wonderful enhancement.

    I'm working on a tourism site and posted about this feature on google groups. We are actually looking for some enhancements on this enhancement (!), but will probably just go with separate maps in the meanwhile.

    Since I imagine tourism sites would be a good market for you, I'll explain exactly what we'd want to be able to do.

    We'd want to be able to publish the map to the website with the categories hidden, not just on the map, but also in the tabs.

    Alternately, and perhaps better financially for you because it would mean we'd have to buy more maps, would be if there were a way of displaying multiple maps simultaneously. Again, all of this would need to be publishable to our site, not just linked to.

    In the meanwhile, I sure appreciate this application and your work on it.

  • Hi Christy,

    So you can publish multiple maps simultaneously on a site right now. I might be misunderstanding what you mean when you say this, but if you copy and paste two code snippets into a site the will both load simultaneously.

    Hiding the categories in the tabs is a good idea. I will look into that.

  • Sorry, I wasn't clear. I'm suggesting a way of publishing the content of multiple maps onto one map. Does that make sense?

    I suppose the result is the same in the end, except in our case, we'd be buying 4 maps instead of one :) In some ways, I can imagine a cleaner interface with separate maps - we will have multiple categories within some of the four sections - and we'd want to be able to switch on and off all categories within the section simultaneously.

  • How can I use the "Hide Categories" feature in a purchased map in an iframe?

    I can use the feature with the view link but not integrated into my website.

  • Steve,

    Which version of the iframe are you using? Can you send me a link to your website that displays the iframe?
