Customizing the Bubble Map Widget

Now that my widget displays the information I want it to display, I am going to click the “Properties” tab to customize my map.

If I scroll down to the “Basic Settings” section, I see that I have the option of changing my bubble color. I can click the arrow in the “Bubble Color” box to change the color scheme of my map. I can choose a preselected color, or I can click the “Switcher” box in the lower left corner to create a custom color.

In this case, I have changed my bubble color to a custom shade of teal.

The “Basic Settings” section also offers me the option of changing my map’s appearance. A map of the world (“WorldMap Countries”) is selected by default; however, if I click the “Map” drop-down list box, I can choose from a variety of different national and continental maps.

Because I am only looking at data for South America, I am going to select the South America map option. My widget’s map immediately changes from a map of the world to a map of South America.

Now that my widget looks the way I want it to look, I can test its functionality by hovering over a few countries to see their population data.
