Changing the map server for interactive maps

CDP Data Visualization uses two third-party options for its Interactive Map visuals: Google and Mapbox.

We use the Map Server setting to specify the mapping choice.

The following steps demonstrate how to switch between Google and Mapbox interactive map representation.

  1. Clone the visual previously built in Interactive maps.

    For a reminder on how to clone visuals, see Cloning visuals.

  2. Follow the instructions in Changing the map server to switch between Google and Mapbox map styles.
  3. Click Refresh Visual to see the map rendered with Mapbox option.

    See the Mapbox documentation for more details.
