Improved Security: Map Password Authentication

After numerous requests to make maps more secure other than having a random url, we have added the ability to protect maps with passwords over our secure site: https://www.easymapmaker.com.  The secure site no long has the option for public or private maps.  Maps will default to private.  If you add a password then that is an extra layer of security besides the url.  It also forces the use of our secure site to view or edit the map when there is a password.  Only our English site has map passwords for now.  If you forget your password, you can either change it with the browser (and computer) you used to create the map or through a link sent via email.

As always, get mapping!

Map language setting in advanced map

There is now the ability to force the language in advanced maps.  It will default to google’s default, which probably right in most cases.

There is also error handling for the edit page to make it very clear when column headers have been added or removed and should not have been.  This will break the map.

As always, get mapping!

Select map push pin colors

We are working on some great features.  Due to all the requests about changing the marker colors, we added a feature to do just that.  If you have a group selected, you can choose the marker colors you want for it.  There are up to 10 marker colors for regular maps and 20 for advanced.

We also added video tutorials on both map pages.  This should make it easier for you to understand how easy mapping is.

Enjoy!

As always, get mapping!

Happy 2016

Happy New Year!  The previous year was a great year since we fixed some bugs and added some great features.

Despite our silence, we aren’t going anywhere.  We hope to add more great features in 2016 including:

  • Selectable marker colors
  • password protected maps
  • automated map updates
  • high resolution map printing
  • zip code code boundaries
  • multi point routing and route optimization
  • More video tutorials.

Thank you for all the great feedback.

As always, keep on mapping!

Map printing and save your map as a pdf file

With another great feature request comes another feature.  We added support for printing your map and saving it to pdf.  With clustering this only works nicely with Safari and Chrome.  To save your map in pdf go to the print menu (on your web browser) and save it to pdf instead of printing it.

In the longer term we have already started working on saving the map to an image or a pdf file with a mouse click or two.

As always, keep mapping and keep the suggestions coming.
