You can get US Map images from ZeeMaps in different sizes and resolutions, e.g., to print out a wall-poster, or include in a PowerPoint slide.
On your interactive map in ZeeMaps, click the Print or Share -> PDF/PNG Image menu item to get the dialog to customize your image.
The first option in the customization dialog is for selecting the “Geography” of your image. This allows you to choose from one of the following options:
Cover Markers – include all the pins or markers that are placed on the map
Map View – use whatever is visible in the map window currently
Select Area – select an area of the map using a rectangle
US Map- make a US Map (possibly with Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Alaska included)
World Map – map of the world
US Map of Used Computer Stores
Select the option for “US Map” to get an image of a US Map with all your customizations overlay’d on it. For example, here’s an image generated from our Used Computer Stores map, with Alaska and Hawaii excluded:
We can also generate a US Map image with Alaska and Hawaii included:
The images are available as a political map with state boundaries, or as a satellite map:
Finally, if you want, you can highlight certain regions on the map, e.g., below we highlight California and Texas:
In this post, we’ve shown a limited set of samples of US Map generated with ZeeMaps. The image customization dialog contains a whole other set of customizations, e.g., selecting the type of markers on the map, the size and resolution of the image, whether you want the markers labeled or not. We invite you to experiment with the myriad of options and contact us in case you need some assistance.
You can easily get a customized world map image with ZeeMaps.
First, create a map using the “Create a Free Map” button on the ZeeMaps site.
Use the Additions -> Add Marker menu items on your map to add your own locations to your new map. You can also add multiple locations in batch by using the spreadsheet uploads options.
If you want to highlight certain countries, states, etc., use the Additions -> Highlight Regions menu item.
Once you have your customizations done, you can get a world map by using the Print or Share -> World Map Image menu item, which will bring up a customization dialog:
Use this customization dialog to customize your image, e.g., set the size, resolution, kind of markers (pins) to show your location, etc. Experiment with different customizations by hitting the Preview button. Once you’re satisfied with the Preview, enter your payment information and hit Order.
The image of a world map will be generated and stored on our servers. You’ll get a link to download the image. Remember the link URL in case you want to retrieve the image later.
Here another world map of the image at the top of this post, as a regular map instead of a satellite image.
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.
We have revised our subscription and pay-per-use pricing to provide more flexible options. Frequent users of ZeeMaps will benefit from subscribing to one of our plans, while occasional users can take advantage of the Pay-per-Use options for one off purchases.
You can see the details on our Pricing page.
Basic: free plan with unlimited maps and unlimited markers. When the map is published or shared, it will display a small ZeeMaps branding logo and an advertisement. You can upload up to 500 entries at a time on each map as long as the total entries on the map does not exceed 500. Advertisements and branding can be removed from individual maps on a pay-per-use basis. You can buy additional upload credits. Map images in PNG or PDF formats are individually priced.
Professional: All of Basic features plus additional capabilities for advanced map editing and 2,500 Upload Credits. Images that would normally cost $5.00 are free.
Professional Publisher: All capabilities of Professional plan, plus no advertisements or ZeeMaps branding on published maps. Images that would normally cost $20.00 are free.
Enterprise: All of Professional Publisher plus add your own brand logo on the map pages and multi-map admin capabilities. For example, you can change the Admin password for all your maps together. Enterprise level subscribers get an additional 20,000 upload credits. Images that would normally cost $50.00 are free.
Remove advertisements, and optionally branding, from a single published or shared map.
Order map images in different sizes and resolutions for use in presentations, brochures, etc.
We have migrated users from the old subscriptions to an equivalent or better plan.
Use the Print or Share > Share Link/URL menu item on your map, to get a small URL that you can share with your friends, family, and colleagues.
The share link is for a view-only map including the map title, description, list of items, legend, and a “geo-search” capability, as illustrated in the image below:
If you have defined a legend for your map, it will show at the bottom of the page. Visitors to the map can click on a legend value to show or hide markers of that color.
Each shared map has an input box at the top right of the page that users can use to geo-search maps, i.e., search by entry name or location. For example, search for entries in California by entering “California” in this input box. Similarly, you can search for postal codes, counties, countries, continents, and so forth.
If you’ve subscribed your map for ads-free publishing, then the shared map will not show ads.
If your map is “white labeled” or “branded”, then the shared map will be white-labeled or branded as well.
The shared map will respect map privacy. Maps marked private will only show data after a user has unlocked them with one of the map keys.
