I think these maps look fantastic. I have a map of all of the construction projects in my city, and it is viewed by a ton of people. I am in the process of moving it (over 200 points) from Google My Maps to MapHub. It would be nice if there were line features (i.e. dashed lines, etc). or embedded YouTube videos, or a better way to “transcode” the My Maps KML data to MapHub, and better image editing features, but I like the responsiveness of these maps much better.
Edit: I really like the simplicity, but I think there could be a few more colors, like white and gray, and some more shapes, like an excavator or something. Essentially I’m trying to recreate this here.
Also, I wish there were an easier way to flip through a bunch of images. If there are many, they form a tall column that requires one to drag the map. I think a square popup with a fluid scroll would be pretty cool, and better than clicking an arrow.
If you could click on an image and it blows up full screen, that would be cool too as I don’t think Google has this feature
At My Maps I also liked the search feature, which was great for finding projects by a certain construction company.
