Map Mavin Roadmap – A Monthly Update

Launched in late 2016, Map Mavin is our pay-as-you go GIS cloud that lets users make unlimited public and password-protected web maps. Once you upload your vector and raster files to our secure Amazon cloud, you are ready to make and share your web maps in minutes – just like this demo web map we made with vectors and a base layer TIFF from Boulder, Colorado.

And with our Screen Share function, you can link up with users all around the world to collaborate on a map in real-time. Picture a live webex in your mind but just based around a map that moves and changes as the members of your team update information. Imagine the possibilities of working in real-time with a team of collaborators around the world without any GIS knowledge required!

Priced at just $20 per month with a free trial month, there is no other cloud-based GIS on the market that can compete with Map Mavin on price. For your $20 per month, you are able to store and/or download up to 5 gigabytes (5GB); and once you go over 5GB in a month, it costs you just 75-cents per GB from there! As an added bonus, you can cancel your monthly contract at any time.

March 2017 Product Updates

In the past month, we released several Map Mavin updates that included but were not limited to the following list of fixes, additions and enhancements:

  • Clarified language on the Map Mavin sign up page to explain the difference between free view-only accounts and paid web map creation (i.e. admin) accounts.
  • Simplified the process for making and saving changes to layer symbology.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented users from signing in to emails containing capital letters.
  • Fixed transparency display issues for layers in a web map.
  • Significantly improved the functionality and stability of the get info tool on active web maps.
  • Added scroll bars to long lists of layers in the My Data Layers & Folders section of the Admin panel.

Stay tuned to this series where we will let you know about the Map Mavin changes that were released in the past month.
