With the mapping options, you can choose the colours for plotting locations on the map for each of your sets of search results. Multiple sets can use the same colour, in which case they are grouped together in the key.
You can optionally display columns for the lines' Std.IDs and for the approximate date of the earliest examples, if you wish.
Some scripts cannot be assigned to a specific location (e.g. 'North Somerset'), but rather than omit them from the map, they have be assigned representative generic coordinates. On the Google maps, the markers for these plays bear a question mark, and the marker captions say 'Imprecisely located'. Question marks may also indicate other uncertain locations, for instance for a composite version.
'Print Views' of the outline distribution maps are of better quality than those on the map editing page. The map title and key panel also display better. If you right-click on the image of an outline map, you are welcome to save it for use in your own publications or web pages, provided you acknowledge the source.
