Mappic uses the GPS sensor in your phone to place you on relevant, useful, local maps. We provide a web-based tool set and API that allows you to add an interactive map viewer to your web site with virtually no coding required.
Mappic's tools can add GPS capability to nearly any map image. You already know that local maps are more relevant to your customers, and provide a great opportunity to market your area. Mappic simply makes those maps more useful.
A single line of code is all it takes to get Mappic running on your web site, and we'll provide detailed instructions on how to do it. GPS-enabling a new map can be done in a matter of minutes or hours, depending on the complexity — but we do all the work.
Use a single code base to reach all of your users. Our web-based map viewer is mobile and touch compatible, and GPS-enabled. A single page on your site can deliver the optimal map experience to all of your visitors: desktop, tablet, or phone.
The Mappic API allows you to embed a map in your web page, wherever you want it. This is a good option for visitors who will be accessing your site from a desktop or laptop browser.
This page demonstrates the use of the Mappic API on a mobile web site, or "web app". The map uses the full browser window to maximize viewing area, and will show the user's position on the map automatically (with permission). It is a great way to add value to your mobile web presence and keep your visitors coming back.

Mappic has been designed to work across many different platforms, both desktop and mobile. You can deliver app-like functionality to your users through your website without having to develop a native app for each platform.
The Mappic viewer works with all of the common Windows and Mac desktop browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari, and the default browsers on modern iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone mobile devices.
Mappic offers plans and pricing options to suit your needs. It works better and costs less than competitive interactive mapping solutions. But the real savings happen once you've begun to use our GPS-enabled map system. The Mappic viewer is functional and useful — it will drive visitors to your web site and mobile platforms, providing you an excellent way to advertise your business. And mobile users will be more engaged: they'll stay longer and come back more frequently.
Using Mappic can save you money: GPS-enabled maps are more useful and more convenient than paper maps, so your visitors will take fewer of them and you can spend less on printing. Put a QR code link to your mobile web site wherever you distribute paper maps.
Mappic can also help you reduce bandwidth and server costs. High-resolution map images are often several megabytes, and many mobile phone users are unable to take advantage of the extra resolution due to the small screen size. Mappic solves this problem by delivering maps at exactly the resolution that users need. Not only does this save bandwidth costs, it also makes for a better user experience. Plus, with Mappic hosted plans we handle the map distribution for you on our cloud-based server network — you don't have to worry about it.
There are two ways to add a Mappic GPS-enabled map to your web site or product: hosted and standalone.
Standalone — Send us your map, and we'll GPS-enable it and process it to create a package containing everything you need to host a Mappic map on your own web server.
Mappic is a very low-cost way to provide a useful service to your customers while driving new and repeat traffic to your web site. A typical map subscription with GPS support is $99/month. There are no setup charges and no contracts, and no commitment is required.
We want to make Mappic work for you. If you have a unique use case or any questions about pricing and plans, please contact us for more details.
With a hosted plan, adding a GPS-enabled map to your web site couldn't be easier. Simply place a
<div> element in your
call when you're ready to display the map. (This could be when the page loads or sometime later, for example, after clicking on a "show map" link.)
This gives you maximum flexibility if you need it, and maximum simplicity if you don't.
We will give you step-by-step instructions on how to get everything set up, and provide a fully functional example to make it even easier.
We'll provide all the help you need to get everything working. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Support by phone is also available.
If there's a feature you'd like to see in Mappic that isn't available yet, or if you have a special use case, or even if you don't yet have a mobile web presence but would like to create one centered around a Mappic map, let us know and we'll see what we can do to help.
