Easy Selection

Once your map has been inserted into your slide, it’s really easy to select one or more elements of your map. All maps are named and sorted alphabetically so that you can use the PowerPoint Selection Pane* (seen here on the right) to select what you want. You no longer have to struggle trying to select objects on your slide when they are overlapping or close to each other. The selection pane allows you to:













  • Select a single object
  • Select multiple objects (with Ctrl key)
  • Hide and Show objects
  • See your selection on the slide

*To enable the selection pane, press Alt+F10 in PowerPoint 2013 or 2010 and in 2007, click Home in the PowerPoint ribbon and then from the Editing group on the far right of the ribbon, click Select followed by Selection Pane.

Heat Maps using Excel

vMaps supports Heatmaps which provides you with a powerful productivity tool to automatically re-rolor your maps based on data you define in an Excel file. The Heatmap feature supports two re-coloring modes:













  • RGB (Red, Green, Blue) values set in your Excel file
  • Data Scale – a data value is defined in your Excel file plus two colors representing the minimum and maximum values of your scale. vMaps Heatmap then calculates the color for you for each part of the map, based on your data.

Using the Heatmap feature, it’s possible to set the color of more than 200 shapes in the World map in around 60 seconds, a task that previously took hours to complete. The Heatmap feature also supports data import into the text labels on your slide.

Watch the video to see how easy it is to color your maps based on either Demo to discover how easy it is to use vMaps.
