So, How’s it Work?

Mapify is a powerful mapping plugin for WordPress. It lets you use images for your maps, complete with zoom and other effects, but you can also use all of the features on Google Maps!

One of the best features about Mapify is its diversity, so be sure to check out our idea section below to get those creative juices flowing. You might be surprised at how the Mapify software is being used.

Full Documentation

  • Fully Customized Maps

    Google maps is great, but severely limits how you can display a map on your site. Mapify breaks those barriers and allows you to use a custom map of your choosing, but maintains the ability to zoom, pan, and add locations.

  • Google Map Integration

    Want to stick with Google maps but need more control? Mapify fully supports Google maps and address-specific pinpoints. Use Google maps while maintaining Mapify’s features: Custom tooltip content, photo/video galleries on each location, and even custom pinpoint graphics.

  • Location-Based Information

    Mapify allows you to add endless locations to your map. Better yet, it allows you to control what appears when a user hovers over the pinpoints. Photos, videos, and information displayed is 100% in your control. Just click around on the map on the home page for a preview, it’s all running on Mapify!

  • Sleek Wordpress Implementation

    Using Mapify is easy, whether using the full theme or just the Plugin. Effects, like momentum-based dragging, photo gallery pop-ups, and smooth transitions, are automatically applied to each map.

  • How Do I install Mapify?

    Mapify works just like any other Wordpress plugin. To get started, check out the video above, or download the readme. Still stumped? Get in touch and we’ll help you out.

  • Can I use any image for my map?

    Yes! This is one of Mapify’s most exciting features. You can add pinpoints to any map, or ANY image of your choosing. Heck, it doesn’t even have to be a map. Use it to pinpoint the features of a product, a vehicle, or even people in a photo.

  • Is it easy to use?

    We suggest at least basic knowledge of Wordpress to get the most out of Mapify, but it is definitely easy to use. Mapify is integrated into the Wordpress admin panel, and we offer plenty of instructions for getting started. Check out the video at the top of this page to learn the basics.

  • How and where can I display a map?

    Another cool feature of mapify is that you can display your map anywhere on the site, whether it's a blog post, or a permanent page, such as a Store Locator. You simply use a shortcode and Mapify handles the rest.

  • Who designed Mapify?

    Mapify was designed and developed by PaperTelevision LLC, and interface, web, and mobile design company located in the Midwest. You can check them out here.

    Mapify is an extremely versatile piece of software, and we’ve been really impressed (and surprised) at the uses folks have come up with. Check out some ideas below:

  • Store Locator

    Perhaps the most common use of Mapify is as a store locator. Do you have a product that's sold in shops across the country? Mapify is the perfect solution to list each location by address, with added features to really make your product excel.

  • Travel Log

    Preserve your memories by placing pinpoints in the exact locations of your travels, and including a gallery of photos taken on the spot. It’s a perfect way to not only document your journey, but to share with friends and family online.

  • Have a product with a lot of features?

    Sure, Mapify is ideal for maps, but how about a photo of your product that allows users to zoom in and view the detail, all while getting valuable info on the features? Car interiors, gadgets, interfaces... Mapify let's your customer interact with your product in a cutting-edge virtual environment.

  • Video Game Enthusiasts!

    So you're playing Diablo III and want to map your journey through hell. Upload Diablo's world map via Mapify, and you can include location-based screengrabs, videos, and you're own story as you chase down Diablo through the lands of Sanctuary. Now that's something you can't do with Google maps, amerite?
