Advantages of interactive maps
Interactive maps offer a modern alternative to traditional maps, provide solutions to typical map constraints, and deliver additional benefits.
You are here
Not there, or there, but HERE. GPS technology provides info based on users' current location.
Web maps use geolocation found on most mobile devices to help users answer questions like:
- How do I get to the closest hiking trail?
- What else is in the area?
- How many bird sightings are nearby?
Got a dull map? Layer up.
Dynamic baselayers reveal and enhance what's underneath your data.
Why choose just one background layer when you can have several?
- Satellite/aerial imagery
- Something more customized. How about a treasure map?
Tap, swipe, or click your way through a memorable map experience.
Interactive maps work great on a variety of devices, and a mobile-friendly approach ensures satisfaction across platforms.
Keep it real
...real-time, that is. Integration with third-party platforms means one big happy map family.
Unlike PDFs, web maps can connect to dynamic services like:
- Google Street View
- Wildlife observations like bird sightings
- Social media (the other kind of tweets)
