#1 - Geographical Maps

Tip: Use custom icons to describe the location at first glance. Any sports reader knows exactly what they’re getting when they see these icons, and can easily head to their favorite teams.


#2 - 360/VR Map

Tip: Take your maps to the next level by making a 360 experience layered with extra information.  


#3 - Campus Map

Tip: Use custom icons, and tag customization to make your tags match your school or branded colors. A first impression like a campus map is the best time to get visitors in the spirit!


#4 - Audio Map

Tip: Upload audio files directly from your hard drive into tags to create an extra immersive experience by hearing the locations in the map. 


#5 - Local Destinations Map

Tip: Upload your own custom smaller icons so that icons don’t overlap and are easy to navigate. Alternatively, use hidden icons so that your tags still appear but your icons don’t look crowded.

Tip: Up your real estate game by tagging your floor plan. Let homebuyers see rooms up close and while easily keeping the layout in mind.
