I have been developing websites for a long time and one of the hardest things I have to deal with in recent times is an interactive location map for Contact pages. With simple maps, my work will become easier allowing to me add interaction to the maps and leaving me time to work on other parts of the site. If my clients are happy, I am too.

It’s a great tool for some nifty presentations. Would love to have the chance to play with it.

This stuff is really amazing, so I’m afraid I’m gonna be using it even in the projects that frankly speaking don’t need it. :)

I work as Communications Director for a large church in Wake Forest, NC (we welcomed over 3,100 to our worship services just two days ago). One of the great privileges we have is to send missionaries all over the world. It would be an incredible asset to help our people track our missionaries around the globe with this great looking map!

Just what i need for a client site i am working on. Great giveaway, if i don’t win i’ll have to buy it :)

James Apr 02 2013

I would use the map to create a mobile education app for students in Brunei. And experiment with mashups to get content from wikipedia.

Tommy Apr 02 2013

I have a project for a few years now, based on a world map. I started with gmaps before stoping the project because it was not exactly what I wanted. Simplemaps should be more what I need, from what I see.

Harri Apr 03 2013

Hello! I would build a social network where people would share what they are drinking at a time, and display interesting info graphical maps, so that people can see interesting trends. E.g. People may be interested to know the city of Chicago is particularly fond of tea, or even perhaps that Denver loves it’s Tequila Margaritas!

Avenirer Apr 03 2013

I would use them for a Travel Agency website as an alternate method for visitors to choose their destination.

Sacha Apr 03 2013

I do some work for an international courier company and this would look super slick on their website.

We are looking to update our maps on to display where scientific research is being done around the world for curing breast cancer. This might be the best solution and reduce development time.

Anita Apr 05 2013

I would use it to replace the flash-based world map we use to highlight the sites of international research institutions with which we cooperate.

Our current system needs someone to carefully edit an xml file adding lats, longs and hex colors for each institution. I hope that this solution would allow for an easier update process, and for more information about the institutions to be added to the map.

Spencer O. Apr 05 2013

My wife and I would love to use this for our world travel blog that will be launching this summer! I think an interactive map to showcase highlights from our destinations would be a great addition. Also, I’m a freelance web designer who would use this for various client projects. A lifetime license would really help!

Jay C Apr 05 2013

How would you use your Simplemaps HTML5 World Map license?

First off I would use it on a Non-Profit Community side-project I have been working on in my spare time for the last couple of months that would point out Support Locations for a variety of issues including addiction, STD’s, mental health etc.
Also I would be playing around with all the features I can and hopefully be able to use it to collect data and it will be useful for User Info and other location based data that would benefit alot of my projects.

Good Luck All!

I would use it on a job & business directory website that I’m working on

I would use it to my next web application projects

Johny Apr 06 2013

I would use Simplemaps HTML5 World Map license on my own wordpress blog. And I will not share the license to any body else.

I tried to make interactive world map or region maps in my clients projects by Adobe Flash. Using actionscript is not good overall because of it’s buggy nature, not work in all device and pain in modifying later time.

This tool will really ease my works, and i will be a loyal and active user.

George Apr 08 2013

I would use it to visually guide the visitor through the poems, poets, and countries covered in the Middle Eastern/Asian poetry anthology that my site is a resource space for!

Lumping Australia into South Asia seems somewhat odd to me.

Anish Shah Apr 08 2013

Will use this maps licence to display different maps in my Hotels related Site.

Tomcy John Apr 09 2013

I would use it for doing a POC in which i would like to show all the offices around the world which the company has with adequate details which customers can use interactively. Once done i would like to show a demo to the management and if all is well, would go ahead and purchase the software.
