Choose your own design by checking or unchecking the items you want to be included in your map. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

Draw your routes

Want to include a route in your map? It’s as easy as using our magnetic drawing tool. More into freehand? No worries, we support that as well.

Upload your own files

Have a GPX or KML you want to be included in your map? No problem, you can upload as many as you like and have them displayed on your map.

Add a geographic shape

Want to outline regions or cities? Use our pre-configured shapes, give them borders or not or even invert them to make them more prominent. The perfect feature to help you highlight your destination for instance when you create your own travel map for your photobook.

Add your own POIs

Have a number of POIs you want to include in your map? Use our POI-wizard and include them in no time, then choose from a number of colors and icons to style them.

The editor makes it easy to mark your POIs and create a map with pins.
