- Clicking on the large blue panel on existing maps will open a new browser window which previews that map.
- Edit Map button will open this map in the Map designer tool and allow you to make changes.

A link to and description of the Places Designer Tool. This is where you can create Points of Interest (content) for your map. content can be created simply to our pre-existing place information template and previewed in the tool before you add them to a map. You can also use this tool to display your own customised Place information panels using HTML. Very handy fzor displaying live information feeds or data visualisation.
