Is there some way to create a legend for my custom map in uMap? I have a custom map of medieval sites in Britain and Ireland that I will eventually share publicly. However, each layer uses a different custom symbol (castles, cathedrals, etc.) and within that are colors representing ownership of the site (red for English Heritage for example). I need a legend so people other than myself will understand the symbols.

You could embed the uMap in another web site and display the legend there.

Inside the map, I would simply create a legend/key layer at the top level. This allows editors to access reference easily as well.
