Export a map as an image

Social Explorer allows you to export any map or a part of it as an image at various resolutions, including a very high resolution for large format prints.

  1. Click  Export as Image.

  1. Click and drag the corners of the selection box until the area you want to export is selected. Optionally you can select the aspect ratio from the menu below the map to restrict width/height.

    You can pan around the map by clicking and dragging the map, or zoom in and out by using the mouse wheel.

  1. To output an image at a higher zoom level than displayed, use the zoom dropdown at the bottom of the screen. This is useful if you are going to print a large or high resolution map.

  1. At the bottom of the screen, select the output resolution from the DPI dropdown. Higher Dots Per Inch is used to output a high resolution for printing.

  1. From the Format dropdown, select PNG Image if you want to download a single image with the title, legend, and scalebar included, and ZIP Archive if you want to download the map, scalebar, and legend as separate files. 
  2. Click Export.

    Depending on your browser settings, you might need to select the folder on your computer where you want to save the image.
