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.

More Features and improved map making videos

We got Albert to make some new videos for us with much better audio quality.  Thank you Albert!  The videos include the following:

  1. Making a basic map  (watch video)
  2. Making a map with more than 500 markers (watch video)
  3. Making an advanced map with custom pins, filtering, data exporting, distance filtering, and a custom logo (watch video).

A couple of features that were added are:

  1. Ability to move a single marker or all the markers that are at the same location.  This can be turned on/off at a whim.
  2. Now select the color for clustering when you add your own markers.

As always, keep on mapping!

More great features

We finally released some more features that were asked for including:

  1. Upload custom images
  2. Upload a custom logo
  3. multi-select filters
  4. Up to 20 different marker colors (for advanced maps).

See a sample map with the features at sample customized map

There were also some minor bugs that were fixed.  In addition, there is a new option that allows the zoom to be limited.  The default for the search box was also slightly changed.

Please let us know if you see any bugs.

As always, keep mapping!

Happy New Year

Welcome to 2015.  We are excited about some great features we plan to roll out in 2015 including custom images, more samples, video tutorials, exporting the map to pdf and image, and the list goes on.  We rolled out some great features in 2014 and added a couple basic tools.

One of ours goals is to make mapping as easy as possible for some great custom maps.

We appreciate all the feedback that was provided.  Also a big kudos to one user who found a lot of bugs!

Keep on mapping!

Numbered marker pins

We added an option to have numbered marker pins.  This can be helpful if you have data listed below the page.  They will be numbered 1-99 when there are less than 100 pins available on the map.  If you have more than 99 items, filters or grouping can get the number down.   To add numbered pins, simply check the ‘Show Numbered Pins’ check box.

There were a couple other minor bugs that were fixed as well.  We have had some requests for customizations, including custom markers.  This is at the top of the list.

Enjoy and keep on mapping!

Happy 1 year anniversary!

A year ago today we launched EasyMapMaker to allow for complex google maps to be made from excel (and spreadsheet) data. It’s been a great year, and we appreciate all the feedback and bugs that we have been notified about so they could be squashed. One of our goals is to be the best, free, and easiest to use map making tool on the internet. We plan to introduce more features and better documentation and tutorials to meet our goal.

Some of great features we have added through the first year:

  • Data exporting
  • nearby filter
  • directions
  • mobile and tablet locator (seeing your location on mobile like devices)
  • kml export
  • css override
  • custom image logo
  • other user requested features.

We also added some basic documentation and added a FAQ for some of the common questions that have been asked.

We always appreciate the feedback.

As usual, keep on mapping,

Custom logos, data exporting, search improvements

As requests for features came in and bugs were noticed, we decided to add more great stuff to maps.

There is now the ability to add a custom logo in place of the EasyMapMaker logo. In your map, simply add a logo parameter with an encoded url to the logo you want to use. For example: http://www.easymapmaker.com/map/58890adb2af63457f31769e607d7501f?logo=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.easymapmaker.com%2Fcluster_images%2Fsemi_opaq%2F45_blue.png

In addition, a feature was added to advanced maps that will allow data on the map to be copied. Simply select the Export Data checkbox and you will see a link below the map that will display a form with the data when clicked. The data does not update as the map is updated, so you need to manually refresh it my clicking a link.

Various bugs were fixed as well, including issues with searching, marker pin labels, and paging on the marker bubble (description pop-up).

We have more great features planned including document, pdf and image export, and general pdf and image conversion tools.

Keep on mapping,
