mappoint 2013 - how only to show selected city or province names RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi -  I have an Excel spreadsheet with ten specific cities in the United States in column 1 and a specific number per city in column 2 (example: "the number of dogs in the city"). How can I make Mappoint show only the name of these ten cities plus the number presented by for instance circle or another chart? I want only to see information about the ten cities on a chart and everything else should be invisible. In the same context: if I want see a map with only province names in China and nothing else (not in neighboring India or Japan), what should i do?

  • You can import the Cities as Pushpin, and show the information in a Balloon.

    Actually when you import, you can include the data you want to show as the "Name 2" field and then Show Name only, this way the whole balloon won't show up, just the single line with your data.

    You can then use the Map Settings pane to turn off all the layers including other cities that you don't want to see.
