Edit maps with the Printmaps online map editor

Search no longer, here you find an online map editor which will help you design maps better and faster. The creativity many have shown over the years to edit maps is impressive. Editing Google Maps print screens, drawing every line in a second layer in Photoshop or Illustrator to create a minimalistic view, forced to use confusing tools that are not supported by modern software. There’s been an eager demand for a simplified process. At Printmaps it’s our mission to contribute to technological development and make these by-hand projects redundant, yet leaving room for creativy.

Downloading geo-data from OpenStreetMap and editing this in Photoshop and Illustrator can cause an unclear file, with unidentifiable layers. The Printmaps online map editor replaces this -sometimes frustrating- link in the chain by importing OpenStreetMap data; offering you several ways to edit within the online map editor; to after receive a PSD or SVG file with clearly named layers for any desired further editing.
