An interactive map is a web based map that has clickable points. When clicked, these points show an informational box that has text about the point, pictures, videos as well as links to external sites.
Interactive maps are not only great at promoting a location but they can also keep your website visitors more engaged. Interactive maps, are always up to date. As soon as something changes, the map can be updated easily to reflect that.
We have released a interactive mapping plugin that helps you build interactive maps as part of your WordPress website. This advanced plugin updates the existing free interactive mapping plugin available in the WordPress Plugin directory. It includes the following features:
Legend auto creation
Marker categories using Font Awesome Icons
Future Planned Update
Creating a route or track using Polylines.
A polyline is a connected sequence of line segments created as a single object. You can create straight line segments, arc segments, or a combination of the two. Basically a series of points indicated on the map using Latitude and Longitude. Very useful for indicating a walking route.
The plugin costs £10 and has no licence restrictions. Use it on as many sites as you want and as often as you want. As soon as we upgrade you get the upgrade free of charge.
An example of the map can be found in action at St Austell Town Interactive Map.
