For a single map or Flex module, enter the paths to the two files in the appropriate spaces, either by typing them or by clicking the Browse button(s) and finding them on the disk. For a plugin set or set-selector, enter the path to the XML configuration file.
- Click the Upload button. The Administrator Application will upload the file(s) to server, check them for consistency and either accept them or reject them. In either case, it will display a status message.
Once this has been done, you'll now see the new custom regionset available in Chart Properties>Chart Types as a map and called "PADD_USA". Selecting this chart type will allow you to build the PADD region map.
