Welcome to the ZeeMaps World of Maps

Map making is an ancient art and science, dependent on complex mathematics, cartography, and surveying.

In the early days, specialized cartographers hand-made maps, based on calculations and data available through enormous hard work and labor.

With modern technology, anyone, with only a basic understanding of computers, can make and use customized maps, adding to the world of maps.

Our goal at ZeeMaps is to provide you with the simplest mechanisms to create your own customized maps with minimal effort. We give you options such as crowd-sourcing map data, or directly uploading and synchronizing from spreadsheets. You can use maps created with ZeeMaps in the myriad ways that people have traditionally used maps, or put them to more innovative use with the new technology and all that it entails, e.g., get a visceral sense of location data, convey geographical reach to colleagues, friends, customers, search through a prospects list, and so forth. We provide you with the technology to create maps — what you do with it is up to you.

ZeeMaps is used by tens of thousands of users daily to create thousands of maps.

We are usually not aware of the maps in our world of maps, unless someone notifies us through an email, or a support call. Sometimes a map comes to our attention when it gains prominence in the social web.

In the maps gallery, we’ve pulled together maps that highlight different capabilities of ZeeMaps, or demonstrate use cases that might not be otherwise obvious. This is an ongoing effort. We’ll add more maps to this gallery as we discover interesting samples.

If you’ve made an exciting map, or have seen one, please let us know through the comments and we’ll review it for the gallery.

We are constantly working to improve ZeeMaps to make it more useful and easier to use. If there’s something that you’d like us to add to ZeeMaps, or modify, tell us.

    The map I did for the JD Nixon Fan Club, shows where all her fans are around the world. So far there are 337. She is one of my Favorite Authors, and is in Australia!

    We’re an initiative that encourages people to participate in microvolunteering actions, ie free, no commitment actions that benefit worthy causes and which can be completed in under 30 minutes.

    We mapped all the microvolunteering platforms around the world, to make it easier for people to do good in bite sized chunks of time. Here’s it’s web address:

    We have created a map that is a dinning guide to Wicker Park/Bucktown neighborhoods in Chicago; our guest love the interactive design, links and short reviews available directly on the map.

    We are working on the world’s first international relay for GYN cancer. Right now, we are just starting so I know there is more information I can add to the Zeemaps. That said, Zeemap was a great way to show the international participants. We have 70 countries participating!!!!

    I don’t know how “exciting” it would be to everyone else, but I created a map for all the beekeepers in Central Texas.

    Our company’s vision is to enable peace of mind. We do this by providing a number of services to allow people to respond to emergencies to the best of their abilities. As part of this vision, we sell Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) which are life-saving devices that can restart someone’s heart once they’ve gone into cardiac arrest. Unlike the ones you see on TV, they are portable, user-friendly, and can be used by anyone – not just emergency personnel. We created this map to showcase the AEDs that have been placed by Iridia Medical over the past 15 years, 1,916 and counting. Based on our data, it’s apparent that AEDs can be found just about anywhere. The map also implies the level of importance in having an AED – even some of the smallest towns are equipped with an AED in which some have fundraised on their own or received funding through the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon. We hope this map will be a useful tool in encouraging organizations to implement an AED program wherever they may be.

    Playground Locator, LLC utilized zeemaps to create a map of playgrounds. The website http://www.playgroundlocator.com features playgrounds in Lancaster, York, Dauphin, Chester County, PA as well as Baltimore, MD. The users can zoom into their neighborhood and find the closest playground. This is a wonderful resource for parents and children looking for playgrounds within their local community. Zeemaps provides the capability to not only zoom in and out but also click on each playground and find directions to and from.

    Further to our original post back in June, Help From Home, http://helpfromhome.org/ has added more Zeemaps to it’s website, because we think it’s a great tool to use. They’re listed below:

    - Do Good cards: enables people to start a chain reaction of microvolunteering actions around the globe, where they can track what impact they’ve made and how far their Do-Good card has travelled
    http://helpfromhome.org/campaigns/do-good-cards

    - Micro Skills Match: enables people to offer microvolunteering skills to worthy causes, by location http://helpfromhome.org/our-projects/micro-skills-match/skills-offered and also for nonprofits to request microvolunteering skills needed, by location http://helpfromhome.org/our-projects/micro-skills-match/skills-needed

    Hi there,

    ZeeMaps is a fantastic service in a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to show where all participants live and study.

    I’m the instructor of the iversity MOOC “Web Engineering”: https://iversity.org/courses We have about 15,000 students.

    The map https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=721124 is very representative as 1.000 have dropped a pin to signal for all others that they are looking for classmates to form a local study group.

    Many thanks for this service!

    Hi Guys … I have a map with 59 people on there of the Biofeedback Therapy practitioners worldwide … there are many more to add and this will take us over the 100 pins on the map.
    I got your email about 100 being the limit and not sure if I misunderstand … then on your Pricing it says Unlimited … but uploads are limited to 100.

    What are UPLOADS ??? vs Pins

      Hi Chistine,

      The limit of 100 only applies if you are adding locations through spreadsheet uploads. If you are adding locations one-by-one, using the Additions -> Add Marker (Simple or Detailed), then the limits do not apply and you can have unlimited pins on the map.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual
    appearance. I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Internet
    explorer. Exceptional Blog!
