With the icon collection added to this collection, you can show manufacturing and distribution centers, create transportation routes and paths, distinguish time zones or add country data besides a map.
Look at our recent blog, where we share a few ideas on how you can create a good-looking map slide.
Why use the North America templates set?
Some common problems you can face while searching for various map templates are:
- Hard to find a whole blank map or pull a particular state out of it
- The inconsistent look of slides if you use several resources
- Unclear legal rights for using the icons from the Internet, e.g. author attribution is needed, or templates are only for non-commercial private use.
- Pictures may not be editable in PowerPoint
- Images of lower visual quality (distorted edges)
With our infoDiagram North America Maps collection, we address all those issues. Check the example slides below.
Examples of using editable maps and icons
There are dozens of slides and presentations where you can apply maps for better visualization. Here are few variants of using maps together with some icons.
If you are talking about production, manufacturing, and distributing products, with several icons and arrows it’s easy to turn bold text into a nice slide. This example shows the production and distribution routes from Mexico factory to US distribution centers and US retail shops.
Transportation routes and paths
Here’s a variant of how you can show new transport routes and ways of transport in particular. The graphics set also contains transportation icons (truck, train, plane, ship, bus, lorry) for illustrating logistic routes on the America map.
Place pins and time zones
If you want to outline a particular city or region, and show the time difference a good idea is to use icons, which can be easily edited. You can change size and color and add a symbol, which will characterize the main activity of a city.
Show countries on the world map
What’s inside the North America Maps set?
The set contains modern, flat symbols which are all presented as editable vector artwork so you can adjust them as needed, using standard PowerPoint tools. And they remain razor-sharp also if you resize them, unlike bitmap pictures.
