Map sharing with others for better collaboration

Created an awesome map? Next is to share it with others.

While you can always take a screenshot of the map and insert it into your documents or presentation slides or emails, there is an option to share the entire live map to your colleagues or friends, where they can zoom in and out, try out different map styles, click on the pins or lines to get more info, turn on and off layers to focus selected layers, view data in table format, and many other options, which is not possible with a screenshot.

Here is how you can share a live map to others.

Step 1: Invite the people who you intend to share the map with to sign up for a free Geolytics account.

Step 2: Once their accounts have been created, go to the map you want to share with, and click the map menu, as in the illustration below.

Step 3: From the map menu, select Share option, as in the illustration below.

Step 4: Input the emails of the people you are going to share with (separate multiple emails with comma), as in the illustration below. Check the "Allow edit" box if you would like others to edit it. By default, it is unchecked, so others can only view the map, but cannot change anything.

Once a map has been shared with others, you can manage the sharing via "Manage Access" page from Map Menu to change map sharing.
