The Create Link tool allows users to digitally
share the maps they have generated. Prior to launching the Create Link tool, use the left navigation bar to create a map. For instructions, see the video tutorial
entitled ‘How to Create a Map’. Once you have created the map, move the cursor
to the top navigation panel and click the Create Link tool. A new dialog box will appear. Move the cursor to the dialog box. The dialog provides a shareable URL and the options to share the map on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, or via email. Select the format of your choice. In addition, when the URL is copied and pasted
into a new browser tab, the map will display with all the data selections and formats chosen
by the initial user. This concludes the video tutorial for sharing
a map using the Create Link tool.
