The map builder allows you to design maps from high-resolution images and use data to plot icons or draw custom shapes. Once you’re happy with it, you can publish it, embed it in a digital document or even print it as a hard copy.


The big draw with Scribble Maps is its API. It allows tech-savvy content creators to embed interactive maps into their websites to help them tell stories and engage readers. 



Basic: Free for up to five maps with limited features. Pro: $14-$90/month


Wrapping up




Interactive maps can help bring any piece of content to life.

They are a unique tool to help your audience visualise data and immerse themselves in your story. 

It takes the right skill set and toolkit to create this experience. Picking a mapping application that relies on GIS expertise will have a big learning curve unless you hire a developer or learn how to use them. By using a no-code mapping tool, you can create interactive maps and embed them into your website to help tell your story. 

The end result is an engaging, interactive map that will capture and keep your reader’s attention.
