Upload your own Map (or any image)

We often get the question “Can I upload my own Map?“. Quite often by students or teachers but also by others who already have a Map and simply want to add some information to it (or make it interactive). Think of historical Maps… or fictional Maps… or any Map that isn’t based on today’s geographical standards. Also, you can basically upload any image meaning it doesn’t have to be a Map but can be any image on your computer. It’s probably easiest if you just try it to test it.

The new feature is available in Step 1 in the right navigationl panel all the way to the bottom. It looks like this:
