Comparison of six free online mapping tools
There is no need to use specific column headers for their data to be displayed and users can choose which data in the spreadsheet to display in the information window. The information window is not customizable but is pleasant looking and practical as it allows the viewing of images and links. It was noted that multiple points in the same location can be obscured in the final map as only the point that appears first in the data table is visible, so the ability to move points in the map view was utilized. MangoMap is a tool that allows users to create interactive web maps from latitude and longitude coordinate-based datasets only. This tool requires users to create an account before allowing them to upload their data in multiple formats and creating maps. Custom colors as well as over 30 predefined symbols can be defined for the features.
