MapHub

MapHub’s API allows you to create and modify maps on MapHub entirely programmatically. For example, you can write a Python script to create a map from scratch or update an existing map with GeoJSON data.

The API has just received a big update, allowing you to utilize functions that were not previously available.

As part of the API update, we’ve published a detailed tutorial explaining the concepts behind MapHub’s API. In the tutorial, you’ll create a Python script, which takes a table (in CSV format) and a directory of images and creates an interactive MapHub map, entirely programmatically.

MapHub has never used Google Maps for its map or geo-search data.

MapHub fonts are not linked from Google Fonts, but are directly served from our server.

As of today, MapHub is free of Google Analytics.

In summary: MapHub has absolutely no advertising or tracking script or “Like buttons” from any social media or advertising company.

What did MapHub migrate to? Plausible Analytics, an open-source and privacy-friendly analytics without any cookies, self-hosted on our own server.

Questions?

If you have any questions or feedback, feel free to open a topic on the forum or email me.

You can follow MapHub updates on Twitter, Facebook, or here on Medium.
