When choosing a lot of different vessel segments or subsegments it is hard to separate them in the map. That is why we have made it possible to change the color of the vessel segments in ShipAtlas

How to Change the Color of a Vessel Segment

Step 1

Open your map and click on the button with the vessel icon on it in the map menu.

A list of the different vessel segments will appear and you can see what segments are showing on your map. In our example, the "Dry bulk" section is showing.

To change the color of our vessel segment we will need to click on the dry bulk section.

Step 2

Now, hover over the "all sub-segments" button.

A pop-up with the name of your chosen segment will appear.

Notice the color palette icon in this pop-up. In our example, this color palette is yellow, which means every sub-segment we have chosen is appearing with a yellow color on our map.

To change the color you need to click on the color palette.

A new pop-up presenting 16 different color options will open.

Click on the color you prefer, we will choose red color.

The pop-up will close automatically after the choice is made.

Step 3

Close the vessel sub-segment overview by clicking on the "X" in the upper left corner or by clicking on the map behind it. You can see that the color of your vessel segment has changed color.

How to Change the Color of One Sub-Segment

Sometimes we also may want to separate the sub-segments from each other

to better organize our map. Luckily this is easily done in ShipAtlas!

Step 1

Open the vessel segment by clicking the vessel button in the map menu again.

We are choosing "Dry Bulk" since these are the sub-segments shown on the map n our example.

Step 2

As you can see, we have selected five different sub-segments under "Dry Bulk".

To easier separate these from each we are going to change their color.

To change the color of your chosen sub-segments you need to hover over those specific sub-segments. A pop-up with the name of your chosen sub-segment will appear. Notice the color palette icon in this pop-up. In our example, this color palette is yellow, which means that that specific sub-segment is appearing with a yellow color on our map.

Click on the color palette.

A new pop-up presenting 16 different color options will open.

Click on the color you prefer, we will choose red color.

The pop-up will close automatically after the choice is made.

Repeat the steps on the other sub-segments.

Step 3

If you want to add more subsegments from another vessel segment section and change their color as well, just click on a new vessel segment and repeat the steps.

We are going to add some sub-segments from the "Tanker" segment with the red color.

When you are done, Close the vessel sub-segment overview by clicking on the "X" in the upper left corner or by clicking on the map behind it and enjoy the view of the various colors on your map!
