indiemapper is free

by David Heyman on January 5, 2012

With the start of 2012, we’ve decided to make indiemapper free to use. Since indiemapper launched in 2010, our business has grown and changed to where supporting and maintaining indiemapper is no longer a major part of what we do at Axis Maps every day. We’re making indiemapper free so that it can continue to exist as a useful tool for map-makers while freeing us up to be as awesome as possible at our custom cartography business.

To allow us to give it away for free, we’re scaling back what indiemapper does. We’ve removed all account-based online functionality including usernames / passwords, cloud storage, and map sharing. Everything else, we’ve left as is. The map-making process is still the same except you don’t have to log in AND you need to export your map before you close your browser. We’re also moving our support operations over to GetSatisfaction to let the community of indiemapper users share their knowledge amongst themselves.

We’re really happy about this change and we hope you are too. If you have any questions about the new direction of indiemapper, please let us know in the comments.

    Thank you!
    This will be a invalueable tool for teaching geography to students in higher education at public schools.

    I was all ready to use this, but the data I have only lists by City, State and Zip Code. There’s too much data to convert it into latitude and longitude. Is there another progam like this that will allow me to do that?

    Lauren – I’ve used this site here to Bulk gather my addresses for KML import.

    Add addresses here to convert to Lat/Long: http://stevemorse.org/jcal/latlonbatch.html?direction=forward

    Once you copy/paste the new lat/long into excel, you then take the excel file and push it through here (read the instructions, can be tricky at first), and it’ll create your KML file for you: http://www.earthpoint.us/ExcelToKml.aspx

    Good luck!
