Map Operational Guidance 

The No Expert Maps can be set up to cover quite a large number of businesses/items in a single Map, the Maps zoom facility enables you to select to focus on a specific area of the Map.

Side Menu

You can use the Side Menu option (click on the Side Menu icon in the top left hand corner of the Map) to not only view an index of the Maps contents, but also to switch off/on the layers being displayed.

Map Link Icons

You can use a Map icon to provide a link to open another Map, see example below :-

Example showing stages involved in linking 2 Maps (links created in both Maps)

Some No Expert Map Benefits
  • Bespoke No Expert Map Icons will stand out more than the standard Google Map icons.
  • The No Expert Map Icons provide strong visual clues to the type of business/event.
  • The No Expert Maps can be kept up to date (the default Google Map displays often show business that no longer exist or have moved location).
  • The designated Layer structure allows for a logical filter method to display Mapped items.
  • Trails can be mapped out with distance information.
  • Maps can have links to open additional Maps.

A single Map can have a maximum of 10 layers with up to 20 data columns (categories) per layer.

The overall maximum is 10,000 objects per Map. A 500 item Map would typical use 3500 objects.
