Provides clarity for maps with many points, with optional category class breaks.
Maps with a large amount of point features can easily become cluttered, which can lead to confusion.
The Clustered Pushpins tools groups high density features at each zoom level with a grouped icon that indicates how many features are contained in each cluster. As you zoom deeper, clusters break apart into smaller and smaller clusters until the features are sparse enough to visualize individually.
Clustered pushpins can also be given category based class breaks to differentiate features.
Pushpins are a great way to encourage interaction with your map and can be added to any point, line or polygon layer. Pins are clustered, or grouped together, with each cluster containing a colour and the number of pins in that cluster to easily visualize high density areas. Clicking on a cluster will explode the cluster and the map will zoom to the extent of pins in that cluster.
For lines and polygons, the pushpin will be placed on the center of the feature. Pushpins in the same location are automatically clustered to avoid collision on the map and clusters will explode when clicked or the map is zoomed. When a user hovers over a cluster, a highlight shows the bounds of the markers in each cluster.
To enable to the pushpin tool, open the TOOLBOX from your administration sidebar in your map editor. Navigate to the Visualization tab and click on the Clustered Pushpin icon.
Enable to pushpins tool by switching the toggle to ON.
Select the layer you wish to apply pushpins to from the dropdown to reveal the settings. Any type of data layer can use pushpins.
You can set the zoom level to break clusters (zoom 15+ is recommended if you have many points), the maximum radius of clustering, and the color of your cluster symbols. Inside each cluster you will see a number representing the number of features contained within that cluster.
Display as Single Symbol
For features that need a uniform pin style, apply Single Symbol clustering.
Click on the pushpin icon to choose your pin from the included markers, or upload your own custom marker. Once uploaded, your custom pushpin markers are stored in your custom marker library for use on any map.

Display as Categories
For features that benefit from categorized pin styles, apply Category styling.
Once selected, set the column you wish to use as the category from the Category Column dropdown.
By default, Mango will apply the default colored pushpins to each category – up to 50 categories.
To set custom markers for each category, click the Category Settings icon. From here you can set a custom marker for each category, set a display label for each, change the display order of the categories, and delete specific categories from the list to prevent them drawing on the map.
Using clustered pushpins on data with more than 10,000 features is not recommended, especially for users on Internet Explorer. As pushpins can appear dense and cause browsers to perform slowly, we don’t recommend using unclustered pushpins if your data has more than 1,000 features.
