Have you always wanted a powerful interactive weather map for your website but felt overwhelmed by all the coding required? Perhaps you know how to code, but you don’t have the time? Well, luckily, there’s now a wizard for that. Introducing our newest wizard: The Interactive Map App Wizard.
Let’s take a tour of the Interactive Map App Wizard, shall we?
The first step is choosing which map strategy to use. If you select MapBox or Google Maps, you will be required to get your associated mapping API key to ensure the final code snippet will work outside of the wizard.
In the second step, you can customize the center and zoom of the map and adjust the animation settings. If you select MapBox or Google Maps, you will be requested to enter your library-specific API key.
With this step, you can select what layers you want to display on the map. As you select each layer, the layers panel on the map will update in real-time. Once a layer has been selected, you can toggle the active switch to enable it by default on the map.
In this step, you’re given the ability to move the panels and controls’ location and toggle their visibility. If you don’t like the default location of the timeline, layers panel, place search, or legends, you can adjust that here.
The Interactive Map App comes with the ability to point and click to see local weather at that location. Upon clicking, an info panel will pop up showing you the current conditions. In this step, you can alter the position of this info panel popup and customize exactly what you would like this info panel to display (default location and content shown).
In this final step of the wizard will provide the code snippet for your interactive map. You can log into your account if you have one, and the wizard will include them in the code snippet. Now all you have to do is copy and paste.
