Mapplic is the #1 custom map WordPress plugin on the web. Create responsive maps using your own images and svg vectors or use the built-in country and world maps.

Your site isn’t powered by WordPress? Try the jQuery version of Mapplic!

Feature Rich and Unique

A truly unique software thanks to the long list of features like zoom and pan controls, multiple floor support, minimap, tooltip, lightbox, categories, filterable list and many more. Simply put, there is no other application with similar feature set.

Create maps of anything! Supported map file formats are: JPG, PNG and SVG.

Built-in Maps

Mapplic is the ultimate choice when it comes to world, continent and country maps. Currently the most requested 15 maps are bundled, but we are constantly expanding our online map directory with free, high quality maps: World, World Continents, Europe, United States (USA), Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom (UK), The Netherlands, Switzerland, Russia, China, Brazil.

Other maps available in Map Directory: Austria, Belgium, Hungary, Japan, Mexico, Poland, Romania, South Africa, Spain.

Use Cases

Tile based web mapping services like Google Maps or OpenStreetMap might not always be the best choice. Sometimes a less detailed, fully customizable map is what we really need, that’s when Mapplic comes into the picture. The following are just a few possible use cases that can be achieved:
  • buildings: shopping malls, hospitals, schools, airports, public buildings or any building that is too small to be detailed on the world map
  • illustrated maps: ski maps, isometric maps or any kind of illustrations
  • temporary maps: camps, festivals or anything that is not permanent. Moving objects, like cruise ships can also have maps
  • historical maps: maps weren’t always the same, display moments in history
  • fantasy maps: RPG and other video game maps, anything that is fictional

Mapplic is perfectly suitable for touchscreen kiosk maps as well.

Key Features
