Plot Points On A Map
Addresses – Cities – Zipcodes – All With Maptive
Plotting multiple locations on a map is fast and easy using our mapping software. Simply sign up for a free trial and then click on the “Create a New Map” Button. This will open a popup where you can name your map, then upload your data. You can load an excel file containing your location’s address information, copy and paste them, or you can load a Google Sheet. If all your data has GPS coordinates already that’s great. If not, Maptive will find the latitude and longitude of each location, and then plot multiple points all on a custom Google map.

What can I do with Maptive’s software:
Maptive provides hundreds of ways to customize your map after you plot points to all your locations. By changing a single dropdown you can change the color of each of your location markers based on what type of customer they are. You can then filter which plotted points on the map you see by clicking on the key within the map tools area. This allows you to plot the subset of customers that have purchased a particular product, are serviced by one of your salesman, or based on any other data that you load along with your location data.
- Find Directions between multiple locations. You can add multiple locations to the directions tool by simply drawing an outline around them. You can then find the optimal route between all of them with just the click of a button
- Google Maps Reliability. Because we use Google Maps we can find almost anything you can find there. This means you don’t need a full address. You could enter a list of cities and states, or even just zip codes and Maptive will be able to find their coordinates and plot them on a map.
- Filtering Locations. With location filtering you can easily drill down on your data by adding a filter on any column in your spreadsheet. This can help you limit the number of addresses on the map and make it easier for you to find the locations that you need. Learn More
- Store locator. The location finder works just like popular store locator software except it uses the addresses that you enter. This lets you easily find the address of the location closest to your location or any other address you enter into the tool.

Map Multiple Locations…
… and then play with them
Once you’ve created your account, uploaded your data through your chosen method, and created your first map, it’s time to have some fun. Maptive’s capacity extends way beyond the ability to plot locations on a map. We know that it’s ultimately what you do with those locations that counts.
May we present to you a few of our most prized features and tools.
Don’t get in a fluster, just cluster, buster!
When you plot multiple points on Google maps, the resulting picture can look a little chaotic. It’s a pile of markers! How are you supposed to find what you are looking for in the haystack?
Not to worry! We’ve thought of that. There are various ways to cluster your markers so that you can see the picture more clearly. From a simple cluster to a more complex pie chart cluster, you can decide which option best serves your purposes.
See how much clearer that is? And don’t think this means you have to skimp on the detail. It’s all there. All you have to do is hover over a cluster and the data you so lovingly (and efficiently) inputted will be revealed to you.
Yes, setting boundaries is important.
After you plot locations on a map, your next step is to organize the picture in front of you so that you it serves your exact purposes.
Our suite of tools includes the following fun features:
- Territory Drawing Tool
- Boundary / Geographic Territory Tool
With each of these options, you can delineate particular areas of importance. You then have the option of applying specific sets of constraints to demarcated areas, allowing you to decide what information you want included and displayed. You will quickly be able to see pictures emerge from your data set that were previously obscured by the rows and columns of your spreadsheet.
And remember when we told you that Google Maps forms the backbone of our platform? We weren’t joking. The result is that all the information that would be included on Google Maps is at your disposal when you manipulate your own Maptive map.
Wow. You and Google Maps look good together. We’re so happy we can facilitate the match.
It’s Drive Time!
Once you plot points on a map, you will undoubtedly want to know the surrounding context of each marker. You want to know how far they are from other places, what proximity they are in relation to each other, and how far is too far away from them.
Use our Distance Radius Tool or our Drive Time Polygon to gain valuable insights about your markers when you map multiple points.
Learning if you’ve situated your business far enough away from the nearest competition or how far your employees might have to drive to get to work are just some of the many uses for these handy little tools.
Find your way in life.
You know how indispensable Google Maps has become to your life. Be honest — sometimes you turn the navigation feature on even if you already know where you’re going.
Maptive takes these navigation features to another level. Our platform allows you to plot points on Google maps and then optimize your route between them.
The only problem — being lost in no longer an excuse for being late.
Customize your heart out.
Our maps are so customizable you would think our platform was created solely for your personal use. Once you plot points on a map, you can choose almost every element of the look and feel of your map. Change the design of the markers, the colors of any areas you have shaded, the opacity, the boundary sizes — we leave you all the room you need to create the map of your dreams.
And now, it’s story time. Learn about just some of the ways you can use our platform to plot multiple locations on a map.
Plot Multiple Points On A Map:
Meet Gertrude. She works as a location manager in the film industry.
Her job requires that she plot points on Google Maps for the purposes of organizing the logistics of a shoot, telling the crew how to get to their destinations and gaining permission from the city for shooting in specific locations.
Gertrude doesn’t only have to deal with one or two locations — on certain films and series, she has to map multiple locations that sometimes number in the hundreds. She then has to ensure that everyone on her crew has the information they need. The last thing she would ever want is for the shoot to fail because she could not adequately plot points on a map.
Before Maptive, Gertrude used to sit up late, desperately formulating the location data she had to include on her map in a way that looked somewhat appealing. She tried everything from using excel to trying simple online platforms to settling for good old paper, pen and scissors. Whatever she did led her to the same point — one of extreme frustration.
And then she discovered Maptive.
Maptive not only allows her to plot locations on a map with ease, but also provides a tool kit for her to do with those maps as she pleases. She displays distances, outlines areas where the base camps are to be, uses the drawing tool to highlight important spots.
She can then share certain maps with specific people, print an enlarged version for the production office, and include one on their daily call sheet.
The crew has noticed. She’s become somewhat of a hero on set for making everyone’s lives just that much easier.
Meet Walter. Walter’s job is to seek out new opportunities for a rapidly growing startup.
He’s out and about all day. Previously, he would have to plot locations on Google Maps one by one, and then try and figure out the best route between the various addresses.
Then Maptive entered his life.
Now he simply uses the OPTIMIZE function on the Direction Tool and within seconds, he is given the most efficient route between his various destinations.
But Walter’s use of Maptive doesn’t end there. He has found that he can plot points on a map that represent his competitors’ locations. He can then cluster the markers that he has plotted onto his map and by doing so, is quickly able to identify areas where the competition is low.
He has also just discovered the Heat Map function [EMBED LINK], which he is more than a little excited about. By illustrating areas of high and low density, the heat map does half of Walter’s job for him.
Walter’s company tells him they’re lucky to have him. He smiles, knowing that there is no way he could be as impressive as he is without Maptive.
