ScribbleMaps Goes Pro

Posted a few months ago about ScribbleMaps, a very cool web app that let you draw shapes and symbols freely in a Google Maps interface, then save the map in multiple formats:

  • JPEG
  • Print directly from browser
  • Embeddable widget (no Google Maps API key required
  • Facebook map
  • Regular Google Maps view
  • Google Earth plugin (though this didn’t work for me)
  • KML file (for viewing in Google Earth)
  • GPX (for export to your GPS)

ScribbleMaps has just added a Pro version, still in beta, that adds a host of new features:

  • You can now set up an account to save and manage maps
  • Import data in shapefile, CSV, tab-delimited, Excel spreadsheet, KML
  • Custom line styling
  • Larger color palette
  • New marker icons
  • Data layers, with full management
  • Line and polygon measurement tools
  • Object rotation tool
  • Undo/Redo
  • KML editor
  • Multiple language support

A cool tool that just got even cooler. Free for now; no mention of future cost that I could find, and I hope it stays that way.

    I signed up thinking it could be a quick and dirty standing for an ArcServer installation, but I’ve had trouble importing shp and kml. There’s no guidance yet on coordinate systems, symbology, size, etc, but hopefully that will get clearer as the beta progresses. My guess is that these are limited by Google and the API?
