We are often asked, “Why do we need to pay for custom maps when we can grab something for free on Google Maps or Yahoo?” The simple answer here is that Google Maps or Yahoo Maps can’t provide you with exactly what you need, customized to your specifications.
Interactive services such as Google Maps are a wonderful tool for finding specific locations, obtaining driving directions, or determining the distance from Point A to Point B. It’s a tool that we use on a daily basis. But it’s not going to give you a perfectly-sized 8.5” x 11” map layout of the exact area you wish to have mapped, along with all of the customizations made possible only from a professional and graphic designer. Do you want to show specific amenities or competition properties on your map? We can add these to your map easily to highlight landmarks or points or interest in the vicinity, as well as competition properties within your market.
We have clients who prefer to use our service only when very special projects call for it. As an alternative, some clients might order specific “base map” layers in a vector format, and then add their own set of properties, landmarks, point of interest or competition properties for each individual project only when needed. This way, they will have all the necessary base map layers needed to build their own custom maps without the need to use complex mapping software.
