Create Professional Interactive Maps for Your Website or App with MapBox

Create Professional Interactive Maps for Your Website or App with MapBox | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Mapbox is a professional map creation and customization app that allows any web publisher to create, edit, personalize and serve professional-looking interactive maps to thousands of viewers.


Maps can be personalized by using predefined design templates, by controlling color for each map individual element and positioning location placeholders providing specific information anywhere across the map.


Maps can also be made interactive, as if they were mini-apps by utilizing layer switching, map easing, geolocation and other features.


Other key features include:

  • Create custom styled maps using MapBox Streets and upload custom layers from TileMill.

  • You can create an unlimited number of custom styled maps and upload as many custom layers as your plan's storage allows.

  • Mapbox maps can be published on any web site via embed, a JavaScript API or via a static image.

  • Responsive, native map integration for your mobile app with the MapBox iOS SDK.

  • Analytics. MapBox tracks map traffic from embeds, mobile devices, and custom applications so you can learn about your audience.

MapBox combines his own online hosting service with his desktop software TileMill to a very good opportunity for publishing maps!

Create Your Own Custom Embeddable Map with Build-A-Map

Robin Good: Build-a-Map is a web app which allows you to build custom maps and itineraries by adding visual information layers on top of Google Maps.


Differently than creating a map in Google Maps by using the "My Places" feature where you can only add placemarks, paths, and shaded shapes, Build-a-Map allows you to add directly your own data sets, special shapes and custom labels.
