EasyMapMaker steps to Create a Custom Google Map

copy and paste excel spreadsheet data

Copy & Paste Data

Use EasyMapMaker to map excel or other spreadsheet data onto a google map. EasyMapMaker takes the work out of manually plotting multiple locations on a map. The first step is to copy (or drag & drop) your spreadsheet data including the column headers into the table by clicking on the table to reveal a text box. The data must include some location information, either an address or latitude/longitude coordinates.

set options for your map

Set Address Options and Select Features

Set the options for your map. Be sure to set location information. Location information can consist of many combinations of the address (street, city, state, zip) as well as the latitude and longitude (set explicitly in separate columns). The whole location can be in one column and be set as the address, or it can be in multiple columns. Set other options if the data contains them. Use Advanced Options to add filters, add a left direction panel with a radius filter, hide certain data, upload a custom logo, or use custom markers (pins).

Make map is the final step to create a map

Process addresses to Generate Map

Click on Make Map and wait for address location data to be translated into latitude and longitude so it can be placed on the map. Once the data is on the map, the pins can be moved or removed. Once the map looks good, save it. An email will be sent for your records to access the map in the future. After the map is saved, the map url will be provided. This url can be changed to something easier to remember. You can share the map, embed the map on a webpage, or print the map.

EasyMapMaker Features for Subscription Maps

Create Maps up to 50 times faster

Create maps up to 50 times faster

EasyMapMaker Subscription services allows addresses to be geo-coded up to 90 times faster. A subscription map with over 50 addresses to geo-code will use the server side geo-coder. Maps with less than 50 locations will use the client side geo-coder in order to avoid clogging up the queue. The old (mostly inactive) client side bulk geo-coder could take 4 hours for 9,000 locations compared to under 2 minutes with a Premium & Enterprise subscription. Pro, Premium & Enterprise

Create maps with larger datasets

Large Data Sets

EasyMapMaker Subscription supports data sets of 15,000 (Premium) and 30,000 (Enterprise) locations without the supplied latitude and longitude. Maps with multiple (or tens of thousands) locations can be created really fast with the address processor. Large maps will render quickly with the clustering engine.

Add a password to maps for extra security so they can only be viewed by people with the password

Password & Login Protected Maps

Prevent anyone from viewing your map by using a password protected map. Access to the edit page requires you to be logged in to add extra assurance no one will change your map. Share maps with a restricted group by requiring a password to the view the map. To allow someone to have temporary access to a map, you can give them a password then change it when you don't want them to see it again. Pro, Premium & Enterprise

PDF file creation

Export a map to a PDF file

Maps can easily be exported to a PDF file. An image file is created and automatically converted to a PDF file when you choose to download the map. Pro, Premium & Enterprise

Create maps with larger datasets

Export map to a PNG Image

Extract maps to a medium resolution png file or pdf file. You can create a lower resolution poster sized map from these. Pro, Premium & Enterprise

Create a poster from your map

High Resolution Maps

EasyMapMaker allows poster sized map images to be downloaded. High resolution (Poster Sized) maps up to 10800 x 7200 pixels can be extracted and turned into a poster. Premium & Enterprise

Add custom pin labels to your markers and your map

Customize Markers with pin labels

Add pin labels to your map by selecting an option from a drop down menu. Map pin labels allow for locations to be quickly identified. They can be used to show fixed numbers, zip codes, prices, or any other data you want to see right on the map. Pin labels can be hidden by changing the Pin Label Zoom option. Pro, Premium & Enterprise

Upload your custom logo

Custom Logo

Customize your map with your own logo. You can set the title text for the logo, a url to your site, and also upload your custom logo to replace the default logo. The default logo can also be hidden. Premium & Enterprise

Add a radius around some of your pins or all of your pins

Radius around a pin

Add a (circle) radius around one or all your pins. Use a predefined value or add add your own custom value. To enable a radius around certain pins, set the value to 0 to hide pins that do not need a radius. Pro, Premium & Enterprise

Use your own pins (markers) for your map

Custom Markers (Pins)

Upload your own marker pins to add more customization to your map. Grouping (categorizing) data allows for a pin for each unique data item. Pro, Premium & Enterprise

EasyMapMaker Features for All Maps

cloud based maps, so there is not anything to download.  You can view maps anywhere you have an internet connection

Cloud Based Maps

Access your maps anywhere and anytime you have online access. This means there is nothing to run and download, everything can work on your computer, mobile device, or tablet. This also allows bug fixes and features to be rolled out without anything for you to download.

show numbers on your pins when there are under 100 pins on the map.

Number Your Pins

Number pins on your custom map to reference them with other data. Pins can be numbered 1-99 when there are less than 100 locations on the map. Pins on the map can have fixed number set from the data or automatically be numbered.

Select pin colors while grouping and categorizing data

Map Pin Colors and Grouping

Categorize and group your markers and change the color of the pins to more accurately to reflect the data. Choose a column from your data to quickly group or categorize the markers. A legend will appear below the map for group markers that can also be used to filter the pins. Subscribers have up to 20 marker colors. Other maps have 7 colors.

Select the details that can be viewable by limiting the zoom-in of the map

Hide Map Details

Limit the details available on the map by only allowing it to be zoomed into a certain region, or allow it to be zoomed in so different addresses are more distinguishable.

Addresses automatically get geo-coded into latitude and longitude coordinates

Automatic Address processing (Geo-coding)

EasyMapMaker uses the Google geocoder (OSM geo-coder for free maps) to process addresses and attempt to find the correct latitude and longitude to place them on a map. Create a custom pin map with thousands of locations quickly and easily.

view your maps on mobile and tablet devices without any extra effort

Mobile Compatible Maps

Maps created with EasyMapMaker automatically work on your mobile device. You can find directions to the nearest marker location or find your location on the map.

Create a KML file to use on Google Earth or Google Maps (limited to 2,000 locations). EasyMapMaker automatically generates a KML file for you when you choose to save your map and have it save KML (Keyhold Markup Language). You can use the KML on Google Earth, Google Maps (limited to 2,000 locations), or any other program that accepts KML. The KML file creator is only available for datasets up to 25,000 locations.

Group data items together by clustering


Clustering groups large datasets by a gridbased formula so markers in certain bounds appear together in a cluster (group). This greatly improves map performance. The EasyMapMaker cluster engine allows maps to load incredibly fast since it shows individual pins on demand.

View dense areas with color heat map colors

Heat Maps

Turn any map into a heat map with Google's heat map layer. Maps can be rendered by color (red for hot spots) based on the density of pins in an area relative to the overall number of pins. Heat maps can render with the pins hidden or displayed. The opacity and radius for the heat layer can also be set.

EasyMapMaker Advanced Features for All Maps

use the nearby filter to find items within a certain distance from a location

Nearby (Radius) Filter

Find all points within a given distance from any location. A visible circle can be displayed to show the radius from an address. The distance from the location can be viewed below the map.

Choose different search options for your map

Customize Map Searching

Choose different search options from centering the map at the searched location and adding a pin to that location, or find the nearest location to the searched location. Searchable/filterable data can be selected. The search box can be hidden on all devices or enabled on all devices (including mobile devices).
