Tips for Designing Interactive Maps
Six Ideas For Great Maps
Big Insights in Mapping
Sometimes the biggest insights in mapping are what’s not there: gaps, spaces, and distances. Visualizing the invisible often leads to the most insightful actions.
Vanity of the User
People see themselves in maps. Often they look for locations they are familiar with: their homes, their workplaces, and major landmarks to orientate themselves. That’s context.
UX on Tablets & Mobiles
Responsive design on Apple and Android devices have come along way. And gestures on interactive maps should work flawlessly across desktops, smartphones, and tablets.
Make Your Maps Easy to Update
The Datalabs Agency thinks about the operational effort in parallel with a map’s development effort. Design and develop an asset with us that you can use again and again.
Consider Other Data in Your Maps
Have you considered meteorological data, topography, or third-party data sources? We know about and have used hundreds of data sources in our map projects and cartography websites.
Map Designs That Are On-Brand
Just because your organization’s style guides haven’t detailed your brand in a map experience, doesn’t mean we don’t think of it. We’ll use your guidelines in our designs.
