Another great feature was added to EasyMapMaker due to quite a few requests. We added the option on advanced maps to add a circle around all your markers. You can either use one of our predefined values or set your own in based on your data. This feature can be combined with pin labels to label the marker (and circle). During editing the circle will move if you move the marker.
More improvements were made to EasyMapMaker.com. You can now drag and drop your excel file into the form or use the traditional copy/paste method. Another great change is the ability to edit and resave the map from both the map create and map edit page. The map is now wider as well. This should make EasyMapMaker the best place for creating custom google maps from your address data!
The latitude and longitude coordinates are now longer displayed in the table. We wanted to make sure we were in compliance with google’s terms.
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.
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.
