Getting Started with Mango

With Mango it's easy to create engaging interactive mapping applications that can be shared with your organizations customers and stakeholders. The maps are available on any device, at any time, from anywhere.

Here's how to create your map application in four simple steps.

Step 1: Upload & Style Your Data

The first step in creating your map is uploading data in order to create map layers [ docs]. You can upload data from within the map settings panel that is activated by pressing the layer settings button in the administrator tool bar on the top left of the screen.

Once you've uploaded data you can configure the following in the layer settings panel:

  • Change the layers name and description displayed in the legend [docs]
  • Customize how the data is displayed on the map [docs: basic, category, quantity]
  • Add labels to features on the map [docs]
  • Customize how field data is displayed in the popup that's show when a user clicks on a feature [docs]

As well as adding and styling data in the layer settings panel you can also create layer groups which contain one or more layer. Ends users can turn layer groups on and off in the map legend by clicking a check box. [ docs]

You can also choose from a selection of base maps to be displayed below your data. [ docs]

Step 2: Add Additional Tools and Functionality

A web map isn't just about visualization, it's also about interaction. Mango provides a wide range of tools that allow you to completely customize your maps functionality in order to provide your users with a rich an engaging experience.

You can access the toolbox panel by pressing the toolbox button in the administrator tool bar on the top left of the screen.

You can choose from a wide selection of tools that can all be added to your map with a single click. [ docs]

Step 3: Customize the Application Interface

The interface is fully customizable you can access the customization settings from in the map settings panel which is accessed by clicking map settings icon in the top left corner of the screen.

You make the following customizations:

  • Add your organizations logo [docs]
  • Use your own domain / sub-domain (e.g. [docs]
  • Create a custom navigation bar [docs]
  • Change the layout of the application [docs]
  • Change the side panel content [docs]
  • Translate the interface text or use custom wording [docs]

Step 4: Publish and Share

Once you are happy with your application it's time to hit the publish button, once published it's ready to share. Each time you make changes to you map you will need to publish again before your users get to see the new version. [ docs]

The most common mistake by new users is to make a fantastic map and then maximizing the number of users that can benefit from it. Once your map is ready remember to email clients and colleagues and invite them to take a look. You can also easily share the map across social networks and even embed it in your website by using the simple tools in the Mango sharing panel. docs]
