Interactive online maps, also called web maps, have capabilities for deep zooming and to contain far more information than you could ever hope to fit onto a printed map – plus search, route planning, pop-up captions and many other functions useful for business planning and intelligence. For example, you can feed data from a spreadsheet into an online map and make it automatically update colours depending on the data.
DEMO 1: Multiple locations on a map with deep zoom capabilities
This is a beautiful, minimalist style map base with custom icons, which Maproom has built for an organisation representing churches dedicated to St Laurence.
It behaves in a similar way to Google Maps. Use either mouse scroll, pinch and zoom or click to zoom deeper and deeper into the map, and see hundreds of churches.
Tap on the icons for pop-up boxes with pictures of the churches.
