Create Interactive Map Solutions with MapsAlive

Draw routes on interactive maps to show people how to get from point A to point B

A route is a line drawn on a map through a set of hotspot markers in a connect-the-dots fashion. You can set the line’s width, color, opacity, and effects. You can also create gaps in the routes to show that the route travels through something opaque. In the sample below, there are gaps in the route where it travels vertically between two floors.

The Art Institute of Chicago's Pathfinder uses MapsAlive routes on the museum's web site and on touch screen kiosks (photo at left) located through the 1 million square foot facility. Visitors touch an art gallery and the map selects from more than 1,200 different routes to show which way to go.
