We are working hard on delivering the best mapping solution available for WordPress - helping you to share your favorite spots & tracks

Mission Statement

Maps Marker helps you to share your favorite spots easily. The plugin is based on the famous leaflet.js library from CloudMade which also powers maps on sites like Facebook, Flickr, Foursquare, Craigslist, Wikipedia and Washington Post. We use this library as the basis for our plugin and have integrated several other libraries for enhancing its functionality. Our main goal is to provide you with an intuitive and user-friendly interface for organizing your spots within your WordPress powered site. Furthermore we are constantly working on improving our plugin by adding new and innovative ways for managing and showing your spots. Our roadmap for new releases gets aligned to our users' needs - so giving support and talking to our users is essential.
