Excel CSV import

MapHub supports importing points from CSV files. When uploading a CSV file, MapHub tries to guess the right file format. The only requirements is to have the following 2 columns present:

  • lat or latitude, as a number. For example New York is 40.71
  • lon, long, lng or longitude, as a number. For example New York is -74.00

Other columns

  • title or name - the title of the item
  • description or desc - the description of the item, Markdown supported
  • group - the name of the item's group
  • url - a link URL
  • color - hex code for the item's color, for example #CC1B15
  • visible - true/false - if the item is visible (true) or hidden (false). Also accepts 1/0.
  • media_url - a media URL, for example a YouTube video.
  • icon - a MapHub icon id
