Why the imported map image crop after import, is there any limit to the size of imported map image?
Yes, because of Adobe Flash stage size limit, the imported image should be limited to within 2880 x 2880 px, you can resize using 3rd party image editor to resize or crop to within 2880 x 2880 px and then import again to iMapBuilder.
Can I use Google map image and edit in iMapBuilder?
Yes, Google grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access the Google Maps according to the Terms. For details please refer to Google Maps/Earth Terms of Service
Can I purchase map templates separately? I only need the map of Czech Republic and Italy
Yes you can purchase a single map template individually, with the
option to purchase the iMapBuilder software as a bundle. Please
find details on the Single
Map Template Purchase page
Can I purchase US county map templates separately? Such as the county map of Alaska and Ohio?
Yes you can purchase either a county map template individually,
or purchase the US county map template which includes county maps

County Map Template Purchase page
I will be the only person creating maps using iMapBuilder, and only our intranet users will be using the maps that are created. What product license do I need to purchase?
As you are the only person creating maps using iMapBuilder, the
[Single User License] is suitable for you. If you need to install
iMapBuilder on multiple PCs or display the maps on more than 1 website,
you may then consider the [Site License] or [Corporate License].
Please find details on the iMapBuilder
Software Registration page
Apart from using the ready-made map templates offered by your software, is it possible to create other map types such as farmer market map, campus map, street map, weather map and congressional districts map? How can I show the stalls available for rent?
Yes. The easiest way for you to do this is using [Import
Custom Map Image] function in iMapBuilder, which allows users
to import any map image you might have already in JPG/PNG/GIF format.
You can then use iMapBuilder to add points, icons, lines, mouse
rollover functions to the map to locate the stalls and make it interactive.
I am looking at your webpage for ordering your software and it is broken down into 4 different costs. I need a basic package, and I only use the Michigan County Map, but we will be using around 200 pushpins on each map that we do and wondered what software version would be the best for our needs.
There are different iMapBuilder packages - the starter pack contains
only 3 map templates while the studio package contains 56 map templates.
If the only map you need to use is the Michigan County map, you
can simply order it directly from the US county map page, at:
On this ordering page, you will see:
\"3. iMapBuilder Developer Version (optional):\"
As you need to add pushpins on the map, please include this option
when select the Michigan County Map. If you want to order other
single maps, you can also purchase at http://www.imapbuilder.com/registration/single_map.php
Why I cannot add more than 8 overlay objects (e.g. points & lines)?
It is a limitation on free trial version. Please register that it would allows to create
maps without watermarks, and can link each state to a specific web
page as needed.
I would like to use the longitude / latitude maps, what package should I purchase?
iMapBuilder has several longitude / latitude map templates, such as World
Countries, United States Mainland and United States (GEO) maps. All
maps can be purchased individually at our
registration page while the World Countries map is also included
in Studio pack
of iMapBuilder for Windows.
If I buy the iMap Builder, can I easily add the Google Map layer to the maps?
iMapBuilder (for windows) can import Google Map as static image.
For example, you would have to export Google Map as a JPG/PNG file
first, then import into iMapBuilder.
If you need the full functions of Google Map with customize options,
you can consider iMapBuilder Online (at http://www.imapbuilder.net).
After you login, you will see a Google Map Editor, which allows
you to easily create a Google Map, and then add interactive points
Can I add video in the map?
The current version of iMapBuilder does not support videos.
Customization is required.
Does your software support the ability to drill down into maps?
You can create separate projects, one for the main view and one for the drill down view of the region you want. Then you can setup a region in the main map and add hyperlink to that region. The hyperlink is set to open the drill down region map. After publishing your main map would open the drill down region map.
For the steps of building multi maps, please refer to:
If you want to drill down many levels, you may consider our Google Map editor, which allows you to click and drill down until the street map is reached.
Does your full version of the map software have more icons in your embedded google maps feature (i really like the ones I was using) or have the ability to upload your own icons?
The standard version of Google map editor cannot support custom icons. We can add additional icons for you, or have an admin panel for your system admin to add new icons by themselves.
Is it possible to import data into the map ? but I downloaded the free trial version and can't seem to find how to import from an excel sheet.
You can use the Lat/Long supported maps to import placemark using the datafile, you may need to have the lat/long information or you need to convert your address into lat/long.
Can I remove interior borders in the map?
Our iMapBuilder map template comes with map regions and map border, you cannot remove the map border, if your map regions use the same color, you can consider setting the same color as the border so that it looks like no border.
If you would like to remove the border completely, customization is required, please let us know which maps you would like to remove the border and we will get back to you the time/cost estimation afterwards.
When I go into the program currently, I am unable to add any points,
lines, etc. When I click on this function it just is in a continual "think" mode and will not bring up the image to add my points.
It maybe because you have updated the adobe flash player to version v10.1 or above which the previous iMapBuilder version doesn't support.
This problem is fixed from v4.25 or above of our software, please download the latest version and the problem will be solved.
