By default, every new map added to your project is an Area map (regions represented with a color variation). However, you can switch to an Icon map (where points on the map are designated with icons or symbols) anytime.
To switch to an Icon map:
❶ Click on a map to select it.
❷ Click to expand the Map Properties drop-down in the right sidebar.
❸ Select Icon map under Map type.
To change the icon type:
❶ From the Map properties tab in the right sidebar, scroll down to the Select icon field.
❷ Click Change to see available icons.
❸ Click on an icon to select it. You will see the new icon update on your map.
