Icon: Ocean


Does anyone know how to set up an Icon to appear in the ocean? I'm trying to include an Icon in the middle of the Gulf of Aden, but so far I only managed to create a region with the correct map coordinates, but I'm not sure how to configure an item to appear in there.

Hi Tiago,
Unfortunately there is no such possibility at the moment. An icon is associated with a defined map area, so if there is no such map area defined it cannot be created there (except with the Flash Map or Shapefile Map versions of StatPlanet - where map areas are loaded from ane external Flash file or shapefile map).
It is possible to create 'circular' map points (please see http://www.statsilk.com/files/resources/User_Guide_StatPlanet.htm#_Toc356607143 for details) but at the moment Icons cannot be placed on top of map points.
