Using Google Maps API
Google Maps API gives you the ability to create a truly custom map that works exactly how you want it to. This method gives you a lot of flexibility when creating custom Google Maps and is free up to a certain point.
The disadvantage is that it can be time-consuming and complicated to build all the features you want. Plus, to create more than just a basic map you’ll need considerable knowledge of HTML and other programming languages. If you don’t have the necessary skills you can hire someone to build it for you, but that’s very costly.
If you’re not familiar with coding, and you don’t have the budget to hire a programmer, then Maptive is likely your best option.
