Make maps fast without any code

Want to create an interactive map? Well you could go about it the normal way:

  1. Put your address data into a database such as MySQL.
  2. Manually geocode all of the coordinates, or write a script to walk through each record in the database and use an online geocoder such as the Google Geocoding API.
  3. Your geocoder will need to update the coordinates into the database.
  4. You are also going to need to write some JavaScript to call up the Google Maps API and start to draw your address points.
  5. Ever want to update your map? You will probably need to code an editing interface for your data.

Or do it the easy way:

  1. Go to batchgeo.com
  2. Paste your data into the field
  3. Click "Map Now"
  4. Save your map, give a it a title and description.
  5. You now have a custom interactive map!

Uploading your data into google maps with BatchGeo is as easy as copy and paste. If you can manage a spreadsheet, then you can manage your map. If you have locations stored as addresses, then you are done. Watch the video below to see how easily you can map data.
