Today we are excited to announce possibly the most important functionality release to date – UMapper now supports Custom Maps! That means that you can upload any image file to UMapper and convert it into an interactive map (examples below) within minutes. Watch the video below (or on YouTube) to see is how it works:
Custom maps can also be used in GeoDart games and Map Wiki’s. Similar to standard maps, custom maps can be tracked with UMapper Map Analytics, indexed by search engines and embedded pretty much anywhere on the internet.
As you can imagine, this functionality can be applied to a large number of uses. Below are several examples.
Post War Map of the World
Bring static old maps to life. Roll over countries to see descriptions.
Panorama of San Francisco
Convert your high-resolution photographs into interactive applications. Roll over the yellow tower in the middle to see how objects can be annotated.
Web Trend Map
Annotate complex charts with clickable overlays. Select the pink star above amazon to see overlay marker in action.
Hubble Telescope Photographs
Explore space photographs and search for terrestrial life.
As always, we are very curious to hear from you. Let us know if you have any comments or functionality suggestions.
