If you have created a text column with addresses or place names in your table or used the Geoposition column type, you can use the Map plugin to display the locations entered in the column.
To activate the plugin, follow the instructions in the article Activating a Plugin in a Base.

You have the following setting options:

- Marker color
- Display field
Decide between the default display with location pins or use images to mark the locations.
If you choose to display images, you must specify the image column from which to display the images.
Table and view
If you have created multiple tables in your Base, you can select which table to use at this point. The same applies to views.
Specify here a text column where you have entered addresses or place names, or a geo-location column from which to display the locations on the map. Note that the map plugin will only work if you have used a column of this type in your table.
If you have color-marked or created selection columns with colored options in the table rows , you can select at this point which of these should determine the color of the map markers.
Up to now, you have to move the mouse pointer over a map marker to make its label visible. If you want to label the locations permanently, you can define a column here from which the respective entries are displayed next to the location pins.
Create multiple cards
- Click the plus icon to the right of the title of your first card.
- Give the card a name and confirm with Submit.
- In the settings, specify which table view and which column the new map should refer to.
