Share maps with other users

You can share your maps in ZeeMaps with other users, giving them controlled access.

To share your map, sign-in to ZeeMaps and go to the My Maps page. In the Owned map section, select the maps that you want to share by clicking on the map row anywhere except the title of the map. The selected rows will change to a blue background color. Then, use the Map Operations menu above the list, and the Share sub-menu within it to share the maps.

Share map from My Maps

This will bring up a dialog that allows you to specify the users with whom you want to share the maps, along with access rights that you want to give them, i.e., Viewer, Member or Admin.

Share map with specific privileges

Once you have shared the maps, they’ll become available to the other users in the Accessible tab of their My Maps section.

You can change access rights, or revoke the sharing anytime, by going to your Shared maps section in the My Maps page. The users with whom you have shared maps can also reject a sharing through their Accessible tab.

Remove local business listings from maps

Google Maps often display local business listings. When you are searching for local businesses, this can be a useful feature. At other times, however, the business pointers can clutter the map, or worst show competitor’s business on your map!

For example, in the following map of a block around our offices, several businesses are listed, such as one Indian and one Mexican restaurant. If you are a paid subscriber, ZeeMaps will allow you to remove these business listings from your map.

Use the Map -> Settings menu to get the Map Settings page, and then select the Map Display tab to change the map display settings.

Within that, check the box that says “Remove local business listings from map”:

Remove local business listings from map
Checkbox to remove local business listings from map

Once you have set this checkbox, now if you go back to the map, the local businesses will no longer show:

No Local Business listings in map
Local Business Listings Removed from Map

The business listings will not show on your map as long as you have signed-up for one of our paid plans.

Maps published in secure (HTTPS) sites not showing in Firefox and Chrome

If you have a map published in a secure (https) site, please read on.

Recently Firefox and Chrome have stopped showing mixed mode (secure and non-secure) content through IFRAMEs.

In order for your secure published map to work in Firefox and Chrome, please get a new publish HTML code from ZeeMaps, or change the SRC URL of the IFRAME to HTTPS from HTTP.

Let us know if we can provide any additional assistance.
