Vector Maps for PowerPoint
How to use Vector Maps for PowerPoint?
Sometimes it’s tricky to create Vector Maps in PowerPoint Presentations or Slides for Business Presentations.
Maps4Office describe how to create your own Vector Maps in 3 steps for PowerPoint.
Create the Vector Map in your Excel-Sheet
Enter your own Data into the Excel template or look into the example folder and change the values.
If you use Power Pivot for Excel keep the same Data structure. Usually we use the Structure ID-Number, Free-Text or Label and the Values. The ID Number can be the Region-ID or the Post code Number.
Use the “Generate” Button to start the Wizard and select your Heatmap type or color ramp.
If you need for your PowerPoint Presentation addition labels, like Area Names, Harvey balls or Text Label, then use the Checkbox and activate the Labels for your map.
Export the Vector-Map into PowerPoint Slides
Click on the Ribbon “copy maps to PowerPoint” to duplicate your map into a new PowerPoint Presentation. These functions transfer all properties (labels, text elements, Harvey Balls, circles and legends) into a PowerPoint Slide.
Redesign your Vector Map in PowerPoint
If you use the Quick Mode function to transfer the Map into your PPT Slides, it is very fast. But it can be happen that some points or shapes are not
completely transferred when too many shapes, points, labels or other attributes, used in your Excel-Sheet. The “Save Mode” copy all points and shapes into your Presentation.
In PowerPoint, you can use the standard function “Selection pane” to redesign shapes, labels into your CI-Design.
