Enter your spreadsheet id if you want to use Google spreadsheets. Link sharing must be activated. If you want to use Airtable, enter your API key, Base ID and view name into the Airtable component in the designer screen. If you want to use a local file, make sure all other keys are empty and enter your file name in

The column names should be

Latitude Longitude Color Polyline Title Subtitle Description

If the color field contains a rgb value, then the marker will be in that color, if it is empty, a random color will be chosen. You can put an associated polyline in the column polyline if you want to include one. The format is [[longitude1,latitude1],[longitude2,latitude2],...]. Provided json files should be in the format

 { "fields": {
    "Latitude": 52.507445,
    "Longitude": 13.39039,
    "Color": "",
    "Polyline": "",
    "Title": "Title here",
    "Subtitle": "Subtitle here",
    "Description": "Lorem ipsum"

Provided csv files should have the format

52.507445,13.39039,,,Title here,Subtitle here,Lorem ipsum
