GLOTTER Styled Maps

From now on you can modify the style of your GLOTTER maps. Many thanks to User Edgard for sending us this feature request.

This means that features (e.g. Place names, country borders) can be removed from the map or entire areas (e.g. Water, POIs, Streets) can be colored individually.

We use so called JSON Strings which contain the relevant information and which can be added easily in the Edit mode.

Here is an example of an “Earth at night” styled map with the relevant code:

[ { "stylers": [ { "visibility": "simplified" }, { "invert_lightness": true } ] },{ "elementType": "labels", "stylers": [ { "visibility": "off" } ] },{ "featureType": "landscape", "stylers": [ { "hue": "#2200ff" }, { "lightness": -32 } ] },{ "featureType": "water", "stylers": [ { "hue": "#0066ff" } ] } ]

You don’t have to program the code on your own. There are several Tools which allow you to create your desired styles and Websites which showcast cool color schemes for Google Maps and where you can simply grab the relevant JSON information.

Feel free to check out the Help section where you can find more information on this topic. Have fun with this new feature!
