In today’s digital age, the ability to create a custom map is more than just a convenience – for many businesses and communities, it’s a necessity. Platforms like Google Maps are great for basic mapping needs (learn more in our article about Google My Maps Top Alternatives in 2023) However, they often fall short when you need more advanced features such as filters, data layers, adding sponsors or user interactions. That’s where custom map creation comes in. Mapotic’s map builder is designed to be useful and easy to use for everyone.
Create your own maps with custom attributes and categories
Beside user interactions, one of the outstanding features of Mapotic’s Map Builder is the customizability in map making process it offers. You can easily create custom fields and categories to suit the unique needs of your project. These custom attributes, such as ‘Select’ and ‘Multiple Select’, also generate filters to make your custom map user friendly.
These custom attributes will automatically generate filters on your map frontend. Map content filter will be generated from following fields: select, multiple select, label.
Versatile geo-object types for comprehensive mapping
Map Builder does more than just pin places on a map. You can include different types of objects, polygons and custom routes. You can also include images, video or rich content in your places (routes, polygons), work with hidden or public custom fields in points of interest and much more. This diverse approach enriches your custom map-making experience.
Engage users in your map project
One of another key benefits of creating custom maps with Mapotic’s Map Builder is user engagement. You can give your custom map a collaborative edge by allowing community members to contribute to your map by adding comments, photos and even new locations.
The level of user content can be controlled through extensive options in the admin interface. You can choose whether locations, images, comments or ratings should be visible immediately or after administrator approval.
