  1. allow map rotation

    It would be really helpful if I could rotate the map before exporting. The map I'm trying to capture is on a roughly 45 degree orientation from north, and I'd love to be able to rotate it as needed to square it up in the frame prior to exporting, to maximize the size of the area I'm able to export.

    • Allow for import of markers

      We have close to a hundred locations we'd like to add to the map but doing so by hand would be quite tedious versus importing a CSV of data.

      • Responsive map centering, as map resizes between desktop/tablet/phone

        Currently the map does not maintain the center as the map resizes. For most maps, this is crucial. The main point of interest is the center of the map, so on phones that needs to be maintained, rather than showing the left most 1/4 (and the pin is off-screen).

        I know this can be done with Google Maps using the map "resize" event, but I am not certain how to get the JS map object from the SnazzyMaps iframe. Here's an example of a Google Map using the technique-

          • have the option to insert a scale

            It would be nice to have a small scale at the bottom of images exported and on the map itself.

            • In map builder, allow us to save (or at least remember) custom popup/marker styles

              It's fairly frustrating to have to manually change every single marker and popup I add

              • Add support for polygons

                Is it possible to create polygons in Snazzy Maps? It seems it is one of the only things lacking to fit the needs of my customer. How much would you charge us to develop this functionality?

                  • New map download feature

                    I love the new downloadable map feature. Make it 300dpi and allow us to capture any size - and I might kiss you.

                    • Add Snazzy Info Window to Snazzy Maps (popup for marker)

                      It would be great to add same editing capabilities directly to Snazzy Maps editor for marker popups. Not being able to add a picture (like in complex-styles on GitHub) to the popup is the main missing feature that stops us from using Snazzy Maps. Let me know when you are planning to implement this and I will buy your business add-on immediately!
                      Even if at the beginning I would need to copy some snippets from somewhere, it would be great.

                      • be able to connect markers

                        I really like the create map feature, but there is one thing I am missing. I am currently creating a map of my upcoming holiday trip, and have markers for all the location I'll stay. I would like to be able add lines between the markers, and if possible lines with different styles (dotted, solid, double, etc..), and colours. (example;https://goo.gl/ayWYTW)

                        • Download size isn't big enough

                          I think that a square of 1000px is not big enough for any purpose. I'd like to use a map in a project and i'd need at least 2024x4048px.
                          I'm sure that you already think about it, but you maybe would add a feature to download in bigger size, maybe a payable option?

                            Hi,

                            Thanks for the suggestion! We would really like to support larger images too and are looking into adding this as an option soon. We’ll let you know when we get closer to release.

                            Thanks again!

                            Very similar to the way there's a left panel when you Build a Map, can that style panel be added to the export?

                            However, it would just list the Marker locations so users can see a list of locations instead of having to click each marker to read the pop-up. This would be handy if you have dozens of markers.

                            When a user clicks on one location, the corresponding map marker would pop-up.

                            Also, instead of the labels (Name and Location), maybe pull in the pop-up content?

                            • Allow downloading multiple map images at once

                              I love this feature - so much. It would be awesome to have a feature that allowed you to select an area you wanted to download, and how many "tiles" of images you wanted (increasing the number of tiles increasing the resolution), and then Snazzy Maps would automatically determine the image scale and download the many tiles that could be placed together in a CAD software, etc. to create a super high-res map. I would use that feature everyday. Of course, I second having higher-resolution image downloads available as well.

                              Again - love this feature and this site very much.

                              • Add custom marker icon / graphic

                                There should be a way to upload a custom icon / graphic for the map marker(s). I know this is possible through the google maps API using var image = 'customimage.png';

                                I believe adding this functionality to the snazzymaps web interface would be incredibly useful for custom styles. OR, This functionality should at least be added to the wordpress plugin, so a custom marker can be set alongside the styled maps.

                                  We would really like to add something to make it easier for people to add markers to the map. We will be looking into some solutions in the future but if anyone has any suggestions, please comment here.

                                    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll have to see if there is a standard set of query parameters that Google supports through their API. If there isn’t we would have to just make our own query params and initialize the map with them.

                                    I’ll look into what’s possible.

                                  • Formats to embed the map on a website rather than iframe

                                    Hi! It would be extremely useful if you can provide us any other format to embed the map on the webpage. The problem I have with the iframe is that: when I add a point of interest in the "built a map" section, I cant link that point with another URL.
                                    I don't know if it is possible? but it would be great!

                                    • Add geo-fence outline

                                      hello.
                                      So I have more than one client that needs a geo-fenced area marked on the map. For example- Bars in this cool area of town. (Bars in Mid-town) With a marker around that area. Love to get shading too.

                                      • Market your Retro template

                                        Users with visual impairments would appreciate an alternative to Google maps. When users print the Google map they see on their screen, the map printout is nearly impossible to read. The color and text is much too light. Perhaps a Retro icon could be placed on the seach bar.

                                        Right now, the work around is to capture the screen using Snag It. Then choose Snag It Editor>Image>Filters>Sharpen>100%. The resulting printout is high contast and readable. It works, but is rather awkward.
