Maptive provides mapping software that quickly creates a web based map of multiple locations.

We have partnered with Maptive on their free mapping project, Maptive Free Edition. Visit maptive.com and click "Map Now For Free". Copy/paste or upload a list of your addresses in the form of a spreadsheet. You may also use the sample address list Maptive provides to see how your Maptive map will look. Maptive uses the Google Maps API to geocode and find the GPS coordinates of multiple locations and can map up to 2500 total location at one go (limited by Google Maps terms of service). If you need to map more locations or need more commercial level features, Maptive's Paid Edition can map up to 100,000 addresses and offers several other commercial level features (listed at the bottom of this page). Maptive now has a new version of its software.

After geocoding your list of addresses, Maptive produces a full featured map with several options for customizing the look and function of the map, including the ability to categorize or group your addresses by type. Each Maptive map comes with a unique URL that can easily be sent to others or quickly embed your map to any web page with a single line of HTML code.
