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 to add a legend to my widget. The legend illustrates the color shades that correspond with certain numbers. I have decided not to add a legend to my widget, but you can see what it looks like here.
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.
Finally, if I continue scrolling to the “Range Color Settings” section of the “Properties” tab, I can click the arrow in the “Monochromatic” 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.
If I change my map’s color to a custom color, it immediately changes its appearance.
Now that my widget is complete, I can hover over each country on the map to see its population data.
