Online and print applications

Along with high-resolution files for perfectly crisp prints, mapz.com offers embed codes and an API, which allow maps to be easily integrated into websites.

Once a map has been created, these functions allow implantation in every medium: As an interactive map for your portal or social media channels, or as a print-optimized image for catalogs and travel guides.

mapz.com also offers a comprehensive library of the most important pictograms for points of interest.

The size and color of marked areas can be set individually, so there is no need to edit the map in an additional graphics program.

The mapz search function allows locations and areas to be marked at the click of a mouse. Countries and continents can be highlighted instantly using country codes.

Automation

Numerous processes can be fully automated using the mapz.com API. It makes it easy to integrate maps in your pre-print workflow using simple database-driven retrieval.

For example, you can automatically update maps with POIs shortly before the publication of a travel guide or catalog, and add the same maps to your website. Online maps will be updated dynamically every time you make a change to your POI database or we amend our cartographic data.

For subsequent print productions and updated editions, you can download new files at the touch of button, update image files from Adobe InDesign or Quark XPress and start production immediately using the latest data.
