USA National County Map with Editable Counties and Names for PowerPoint

View of our large 28" x 20" USA National County Map with the included PowerPoint slides.
USA National PowerPoint Editable County Map
One of our most popular editable PowerPoint maps is our USA National County Map. Available on  MapsforDesign.com site. This map is used by sales and marketing managers who want to set up a national county sales territory map with the big picture. This is a complicated map with over 3,000 counties, below are some tips for getting the most out of this map.

But we have a larger national county map that is 28" wide by 20" high. What we usually do is email this larger file to anyone who purchases the 17" x 11" map. Here is a link for the current PowerPoint USA National County map. I am going to work on getting the larger map up on MapsforDesign.com shortly.



Some key tips to keep in mind when you purchase and use this map for your projects.
Grouping and UnGrouping - The county map is set up with each state's counties grouped together, and with their names set up as a group on top. Grouping and Ungrouping are very important when working with a map like this. I usually recommend that you customized one state at a time. You can pull a state out and paste it on a second slide, customize it and then put it back.

Selecting Several Counties at The Same Time - Your Shift key is your friend for grabbing several objects at the same time and setting up a sales or marketing territory. Click on the first county, push down your Shift key and then click on additional counties. Once they are selected you can add a fill color to make them all the same.

Selecting and Pulling Out Several States at The Same Time - The task is to select several states. It is usually easier with this map to delete what you don't want instead of trying to select what you do want. Once you have the surrounding states cleared out it is easy to grab the states you want.

Snap to Grid - On all of our maps the Snap to Grid has been turned off. The default in PowerPoint is that the Snap to Grid is turned on. The Snap to Grid is an invisible grid in the PowerPoint slide that helps you line objects up. What happens with our maps is if Snap to Grid is on and you pull out several counties from the big map, customize them and put them back, it can be tough to get them back all lined up from where they came out from. If the grid is off it is easy. This comes into play if you select one of our maps and paste it into another presentation the Snap to Grid will be on. To turn it off hold down the Control key on your keyboard and Right Click with your Mouse. You will see it as an option in the pop up window, just click it off.

We have put together a couple of videos on how to customize this map and set up a sales territory.

But gives you the ability to customize your map http://www.indezine.com/products/powerpoint/learn/shapes/edit-points-for-shapes-in-ppt2010.html

How to Make a Blank Canada Map in PowerPoint

We get asked this question fairly often on how to use our editable Powerpoint maps to make up blank map copy master for a school worksheet or presentation. It is real easy to do and this short video will take you through the steps


It is easy to make a blank, printable, outline Canada for marking up, coloring, school project, whatever you need from our royalty free downloadable PowerPoint clip art maps. Watch the video to learn how to take a basic World of Maps map, select it and change the colors to have a map with sharp, clean vector lines for your project. It is very easy to produce a clean blank printable map.

1. After purchasing and downloading our editable PowerPoint mapyou're your project, open it in PowerPoint. For our example we are using a Canada map.

2. Select the map with your pointer by clicking in the upper left corner of the slide and dragging the pointer over the entire map so that it is completely surrounded by the light blue field. Once you release you finger all the land will be selected. You can also do this by choosing Select All in the Edit pull down menu. You can also hold the SHIFT key and select each province individually.

3. Once everything is selected you can go to the Formatting Palette or up in the Ribbon -- Colors, Weights, and Fills and choose the Fill Bucket and fill the map with the color white. I like using the white fill instead of nothing because it is easier to select a province with color in it if you want to customize it later. If you have no fill you have to grab the line to select it, with a color fill you can click anywhere on the state to select it. That is it, you are ready to go, save it and print it, pretty easy.

TIPS:
4. If you group the map you can also resize it, (check out our enlarging and reducing video) and make a custom map.

5. I usually recommend removing the text first but if you don't then just hold down the shift key and select each state or county individually and then fill with color.
