    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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. Allow for different font inputs

    I stumbled across this resource and it has been a goldmine. Great work!

    Is there a possibility of changing fonts? I am looking to create an antique style of map (eg. pirate map) and I would like to use an older looking font.

    Thanks

  7. Add US State County Cababilities

    As far as I can tell there is no option to turn on outlines for Counties for the US.

  9. colorblind friendly tag

    It would be great to add a tag to map styles that are colorblind-friendly. You can also have a tag for printer-friendly styles (for printers that print in black and white for instance)

  10. Have the itinerary function!

    Google can create itinerary when we enter a starting point and a destination. It is useful to show a road to follow for instance. It would be great !

  12. add a search feature to find specific addresses.

    You need a way to search for a specific address, not just styles.
    Your street maps are the only ones I can find anymore that are not useless pastel colors that won't print right. I need linework for street maps with names that are actually readable. Google and others do not have that anymore. Yours do.
    Thanks,

  18. Build a map: instead of a pop up window on the marker, can the marker be linked (Imagelink)

    I need the multiple marker map at a global level. What is perhaps more intuitive to the visitor is the idea that mouse hover over the marker gets you the name of the country, then click takes you to the info page (which has to be on our website rather than your wonderful popups).
