Creating your own custom maps got easier.

Custom Maps are required for many reasons such as for private venues, outdoor areas, private areas, factory floors, golf courses, zoo, parklands, bike paths, walking trails, resorts, outdoor and indoor events. This list can be endless as a map is one of the key things that a user expects and most of the maps either are hard to design or hard to navigate.

Types of Custom Maps you can create

Option 1: Google Map base with annotated POIs, shapes and lines

These are great for when you need to show your venue in the context of its larger geography but need more detail that Google Maps provides.

If Google Maps directions gets people to your street address, but doesn’t then get them the final distance to the place they want to be at your street address, this is the map type for you. You use this when have places visible on Google Maps, but where you want to highlight specific features or points or shapes that Google Maps leaves out. You might need to show details like building outlines, entrances, exit points, where reception or loading docks are carpark entrances and customer parking areas as a few examples.

Option 2: Overlay your design onto a Google Map

Add your own design and replace the area of a Google Map. This is a bit technical but will give you an amazing way to replace a section on Google with your own. Your designer can create a map which is built to scale, you then align that onto Google with the help of our platform and replace the section as your own custom map.

This map type requires a high-resolution image with some specific requirements in its production to work properly. Use this where you want to customise the style of your venue, and still want to display markers, shapes (rectangles/circles/polygons), and lines (routes or boundaries). Your custom map image will give way to the underlying Google Street or Satellite view base behind it’s edges.

Option 3: Private maps with no underlay Google Map

This is great when you have a base design such as a .png file and want to digitise the map such as a zoo, festival, event map or a factory.

This option does not have a google map underlay and helps you digitise your map design. These are for when GPS tracked locations are not needed or not available, indoor maps often use this type because your phone’s GPS doesn’t often work inside buildings.

These are also used when stylised representations of the map are more useful than exact representations of real work shapes and geometry. When the order and relative positions of place or features on the map are more important than exact angles and distances, stylised maps can sometimes provide more clarity and usefulness than maps that reflect the real work more accurately. Train maps are an extreme example of this – where it’s way more useful to clearly show the order of stations and which rail line they lie on, and distances and directions between stations are not nearly as important to people using the maps to get from one station to another.

Use this where you don’t need any underlying geographical or GPS alignment or where your custom map image is stylised and doesn’t directly align with real work geography.
