How to Drop a Pin on Your Interactive Map
Create interactive maps with pin markers. Upload your location data to create customizable pin maps in minutes.
What are pin maps?
One of the most useful features of a traditional paper map is placing a pin in it to mark a specific location visually. Maptive uses the power of Google Maps API to make creating an interactive pin map quick and easy, giving you the option of either entering an address, manually dropping a pin by clicking on the map, or uploading a spreadsheet with addresses in bulk to generate a pin map.
How do I drop a pin with Maptive?
Once your map is created mark a new location by selecting the pin icon on the right-hand side of the screen. Select your preferred option:
- Input Address Information: Enter the address (street address, city, state, country, and zip code) of your desired location to mark it with a pin. Click “Map Now” to drop a new pin at that exact location or select “Add Another Location” to place another marker.
- Place a Marker on the Map: Choose this option to manually drop a pin anywhere on your map. Simply move your cursor and click on the location you’d like to place your marker.
Drop Multiple Pins at Once

Mark Your Location
To mark your location on the map, click the “Show My Location” button on the right-hand side near the top of the screen. A pin will be dropped on your current location.
