I have a csv file holding coordinates, I am able to import it correctly into umap. I managed to also have the marker name imported through an additional column named 'name'. However, I would like to import the color of the marker.

Here is an example of input file:


This does not work. I also tried using HTML/CSS colors (i.e. replacing 'red' with #ff0000). This does not work either. What I don't understand is that is is stated here:

csv: [...] All other columns will be imported as properties.

Did I misunderstand something?

If this is not possible with csv, is it possible with other file formats?

Thanks for all suggestions.

Edit: the real file is about 5000 markers, so I can't edit them one by one...

In umap Github there is a description how this can be achieved using GeoJSON. Maybe that is a way for you to do it.

Thanks, I'll have a look, but I have to check how can I convert my csv file to geoJSON.

You can also try if _umap_options can be passed as a csv column somehow.
