Other than a map object that contains all US states the USA map library have different objects for every state. Because the whole map is a collection of state objects you can can easily add styling to individual states. Below is part of an infographic created for hurricane Sandy. You can clearly see individual styling for separate states.

Our world maps library include a world map, separate objects for all continents and separate objects for some countries. As with the USA map each continent can be styled differently. Below is a world map with Olympic medal distribution.
Although charts and maps are great for showing information sometimes you need to add external images to show more information. With the inbuilt Google image search it’s just a matter of finding your image and dragging it to the drawing area.
If you want to import and add your own image, like a company logo we do provide the import functionality.
It might be not as fancy as BBC infographics, but by using the object linking feature available in the Creately player you can add some interactivity to your infographics. You can easily embed the player in any webpage and impress your readers with it. You can also use it to link to external websites or to the sources you acquired data for your infographic.
