online map creator now offers free map sharing functionality

By: PRLog
PORTLAND, Ore. - June 28, 2016 - PRLog -- For many years has offered an online mapping service where you can add pins to map, visualize, identify, and learn more about your next trip, or for locating family and friends. This website was one, if not the first, online service to offer a custom Google map that could be shared with other people around the world.

We have thousands of loyal subscribers that use the free version and we want to reward them making the map sharing functionality part of the free plan. You can also password protect your map if you need to and, unlike other mapping services, we do not display ads on your map.

How is different from Google My Maps? is an interactive map to pin multiple locations built using the popular Google Maps API. Pinmaps offers a great deal of functionality and features that are not available on Google's My Maps. There are many components that differentiate Pinmaps from Google My Maps, but let's learn more about what makes Pinmaps unique.

Each pin has its own unique properties. Pins in Google My Maps do not have their own identity when it comes to the zoom level and map type. Those factors are attached to the map itself, forcing the user to apply the same map settings to all their pins. This is not an issue in Pinmaps. Pinmaps enables users to create a map and assign various properties to each individual pin. Think of it as though the main map is a container where you can add pins.

Every map point or location represented by a pin is an independent entity on Pinmaps. Points on the map can be saved with their own "Map Type" and "Zoom Level." For example, you might click on one point that has a zoom level of 16 on a "Satellite" map. Another point on the same map could have a zoom level of 4 on a "Road" or "Terrain" map.

Maps and pins are completely customizable. On Pinmaps, you can assign a map to be viewed as a "Satellite," "Road," or "Terrain" map. Pins placed on that map can be viewed in the same manner as the map, or can be assigned a unique map type.

Our goal is to provide you with the technology and tools to create beautiful maps. Today, Pinmaps has grown to thousands of users, including many large companies. These businesses benefit from its sharing functionality, mobile application to find customers, and that it allows them to easily identify competition to grow sales and assist sales teams.
