A user-friendly software utility that enables users to effortlessly create custom maps based on Google Maps, but featuring the size they select.
When you are about to go on a trip to an unknown place, it is best to take a map along, just to make sure you will not get lost on the way. Since more and more people prefer digital maps to the traditional ones, you can rely on Google Maps Keeper and create your own customized digital maps.
The application comes with an intuitive graphic interface and enables you to effortlessly navigate to the location you choose via the integrated Google Maps.
You can modify the height and width of the map to the dimensions you prefer, thus making sure it is clearly visible on any device you might want to view it on.
The next step is to select the layers you want to be displayed on your map - there are several types of layers, such as traffic, bicycling, transit, weather (you can choose between Celsius and Fahrenheit degrees), clouds or Panoramio. The first few of them are quite easy to understand, while the last one will display pictures uploaded by users for various places.
You can also set the map controllers to be visible, but it is best to disable them since they take up space and might make the map seem too crowded.
At this point, you can navigate to a specific address or simply enter the latitude and longitude of a location, depending on your needs.
Additionally, Google Maps Keeper allows you to overlay various types of objects on the map, such as rectangles, polygons, arrows, circles or lines, which can come in handy when you want to emphasize a city, area or street. You can customize the stroke color, opacity and weight for the drawn shapes.
All in all, Google Maps Keeper can be a great tool for creating custom maps, then exporting them to JPG or BMP. However, if you want to unlock all the functions of the applications you need to purchase a license.
