Key Features of MapMaker
Map beyond Google Maps! Though MapMaker fully supports Google maps and enhances it beyond compare, the true power lies in the fact that you can use maps of ANY style. You simply upload images of your choosing, and MapMaker let's you add limitless locations with a simple click
Use any image for your map: Google maps is great, but severely limits how you can display a map on your site. MapMaker breaks those barriers and allows you to use a map of your choosing, but maintains the ability to zoom, pan, and add locations. MapMaker supports Jpegs, gifs, and PNG files, and even lets you specify the background color if using transparent images.
Can be used with any photo as a hotspot generator: MapMaker is absolutely perfect for showcasing a product's features, such as car interiors, appliances, etc. while tagging each feature with a gallery and detailed information.
Google Map Integration: Unlock Google Maps with our powerful features. Look, we like Google Maps too, but thought it could use some tweaks. Want to stick with Google maps but need more control? MapMaker fully supports Google maps and address-specific pinpoints. You can toggle from a custom map to a Google map, while maintaining MapMaker's extra features: Custom tooltip content, photo/video galleries on each location, and even custom pinpoint graphics.
Detailed Information & Galleries on Each Location: Add a unique video and photo gallery to every location! MapMaker allows you to add endless locations to your map. Better yet, it allows you to control what appears when a user hovers over the pinpoints. Photos, videos, and information displayed is under your control. Just click around on the map found on the demo for a preview, it's all running on MapMaker!
A Powerful & Intuitive Admin: The MapMaker plugin seamlessly integrates with the WordPress Admin, allowing you to customize your map and locations with a simple, intuitive interface. Enter new locations by double clicking on the map, or by entering the exact address. Add customized pinpoint graphics to your map, custom tooltip content for each location, control the default zoom levels to focus on specific regions (Google Maps Mode), and more!
jQuery Effects: Stand out from the crowd with ultra-slick, app-like effects in the form of custom pop-ups, momentum-based drag and drop action, and pan and zoom behavior of your map, regardless of the image
Ultra-slick Image map mode that emulate Google Maps
Lightbox pop-ups: Add unique video and photo gallery on each and every location on your map! This can also be disabled for any location as needed.--
Momentum-based drag and drop style that emulates Google Maps when in Image Mode
Advanced Map Customization: Choose Google's viewing mode, control default zoom and location settings, and more.
Toggle zoom functionality: Perfect for those that prefer to "lock" their map in place, whether on Google Maps or Image Mode. Default the map view to showcase and entire country, or down into a specific neighborhood.
Toggle Pop-up galleries by each location: You can disable pop-up galleries as needed on a per-location basis. So, if you just want the tooltips to display, or a combination, it's easy to achieve.
