MapmyIndia today announced major improvement to its free maps portal 'maps.mapmyindia.com'. The portal has been completely revamped, with richer map data and connected/interactive features like real-time traffic updates, Social media interface, enhanced user interface, drag and drop direction markers to customize routes and widgets.
MapmyIndia users will now have access to real-time traffic information. This service is currently available for Delhi (NCR) and Mumbai. Now, users can also access social navigation features like Add/Edit a place, write a review and maintain their private atlas. These are linked to popular social media apps like Facebook. The updates will be immediately made live on the social platforms, as integrated by the user. The user Interface enables speedier access and seamless zooming in and out of the maps.
“Maps.mapmyIndia.com has been a benchmark for best navigable maps of India on the internet. And we are making it even better. This is an unprecedented revamp in scale and quality. We have always challenged new frontiers to make available the best products and apps to our users. The new version is strongly focused on enhancing the user experience. We have added many social, utility and convenience features to the maps. I am sure that these will make the portal even more popular and benefit millions across India,” says Rakesh Verma, Managing Director, MapmyIndia
Bloggers and developers will also be benefited as the new portal allows for hassle-free embedding of maps, driving directions and search nearby onto their websites/blogs. MapmyIndia runs across all popular platforms - Android, iOS and Windows.
