I’m working on a project to raise some awareness about the way we use online maps these days to find local businesses. Like using map services as Google Maps and their not really well-known ‘local ranking’ mechanism.
Advertising- and ranking mechanism awareness are more and more part of our critical thinking while we surf the internet. That critical thinking doesn’t seem to apply on using map services like Google Maps.
So I try to tackle this, by presenting an idea of an alternative approach. I used the case of searching for bars and pubs.
And Maphub made it possible for me to start creating my own bar and pub map and offer a different experience. With no advertising, ranking(SEO) and reviews
I am a supporter of the fotball team Borussia Dortmund (BVB) from Germany.
I lived outside Germany since I am a teenager and I always thought it was difficult to find other like minded supporters. Thats what I created the map for.
To show all official and unofficial BVB supporterclubs around the world.
It grew more and more, and now there are many different locations related to Borussia Dortmund.
I live in the Balearic Islands (Spain) and I am fond of looking for ancient natural water sources.
On the map (imported KML) by clicking on a globe a window with the name of the source and a photograph is opened; clicking on the photograph opens an external link to the detailed file of the source.
This map is a small area.
I am in the experimental phase with MAPHUP waiting for the final version, at the moment I like it!
I am sooooo happy to have found your site. It’s is great! We are a selfhelp group of people with Parkinson’s Disease in Germany and came up with the idea to gather POIs related to PD in the country. There is not much to see yet, but you can see the structure. Looking forward to feedback. Also, we are a group of 3 people who will be feeding the map. Is there a possibility for us to have separate profiles for the same account?
The Village of Juzcar in Malaga, Spain.
Our small village of about 250 people was chosen by Sony to promote the first Smurf 3D movie in 2011.
The village was painted blue (every house bar one) in a two week period. The worldwide exposure was unexpected and we stood in the spotlight, with no real tourism experience, it was a hands on approach to cope with the thousands of visitors assending on this small location.
I took the printed map produced by the town hall as a base for a more interactive experience.
Any recommendations welcome… it’s been a fun project.
Overview over some Multicaches For Vienna so that I can get a better overview where I still need to go.

Maphub is exactly the map application that I was looking for. Every now and then I post an update of my map on my Instagram, other travelers asked me a few times which application I used to create the map, so I guess more people like it
As we spent our holidays often in Portugal, I made a map with some POI to visit.
This is a nice topic an I spent some time watching all of your maps and found some great ideas
MapHub is awesome and is helping me to move to another level with travel guide blog my soul project dedicated for travelers with motorhomes and caravans all over the world. I hope my map build will help others as we will update it constantly with camping info and off-camping spots adding best food places we have tested and important to visit in different towns. It is a huge project I know without a finish line but is a reason to travel
I made this map to promote online shopping at local retailers…
I’m new to MapHub and this is my first post in the community.
This is a great map!
I want to just confirm, are the circular photos you’re using as pins individual icons you created and uploaded or are you using code to insert the loaded photo?
After discussions on our area group for an updated map of our Association’s active and dormant clubs I found MapHub and was amazed by what it offers. So after tracking down as much info as possible I got started on a map for RTSA and here’s the results so far:

Hello, this is the map we are working on…Place names contain a lot of information about history and human relationship with nature.
This is a map that shows how to write the word “country” on (almost) every European language. The similar ones are colored, and the unique ones are light-gray. I am also currently working on a similar map, but with Asia and Oceania.
P.S.: If anyone knows how to write “country” on the languages I missed, it will be highly appreciated
