Maps4News: Instant, Custom Maps


If you use maps in your publication, Maps4News may be a cost effective way to generate them in just minutes. As they say:

“Simply use the Maps4News software to enter the location you want, then click a few buttons to scale and customize your map as needed. And that’s it! You can choose from a variety of different map styles that have multilayer flexibility, you can add call-outs and icons, you can even preset fonts and colors to match the look and feel of your publication. Choose to publish a print-ready raster file or open your high-quality vector map art in a graphics program like Adobe Illustrator® to add additional icons, effects, or anything else you might want to incorporate.”

Pricing starts at $3,000 per year for two licenses, and is based on number of licenses, circulation and map coverage (local or world).

They also offer services for cartographers (Maps2Publish), variable-data printing (Maps4Mail), and directories (Maps4LocalSearch).
