I'm hoping to make a quick duplicate of a map in Carto, the same way you can 'make a copy' of a spreadsheet or a word doc.

My plan is to add a new map layer (with new data) to the duplicate and delete the old data to create a new map with all the same attributes as before, but new geography.

I can't modify the original because it's embedded in a live webpage.

  • You could click on a map description field (under the preview), then the new panel appears on top with Duplicate map option. Is it what you need or I misunderstood you? – Mykola Kozyr Dec 14 '17 at 15:50
  • Are you using the newer Builder software? I haven't migrated yet and maybe that's the issue. I've asked Carto to migrate me and I'll be in touch! – Jack Julian Dec 14 '17 at 21:34
  • @JackJulian where did you ask for support? send us an email to support@carto.com and we'll be more than happy to upgrade you (I have no idea why but you should already be migrated!) – Jorge Sanz Dec 15 '17 at 7:41

You can duplicate maps easily, there are two ways:

  • If you are in the dashboard just select a map clicking in the card and you'll see a menu in the upper right side with the Duplicate map label.

  • Inside the dashboard interface, click in the actions menu just right the dashboard name (the three vertical dots) and you'll see the Duplicate action with the Rename, Delete and so on.

  • Thanks Jorge, I've upgraded to Builder from Editor, and the command is right there. Thanks! – Jack Julian Dec 15 '17 at 18:50
