Crowdsource Map

Crowdsourced mapping, also called crowdmapping is when users add content to a map.

The user-generated content leads to higher user engagement with the map.

With Mapme, you can easily create crowdsource maps.

A typical example of map crowdsourcing is when users add their locations and information about themselves on a map.

    How it works?

    With Mapme, you can use form builders like Google forms, Jotform or Typeform to crowdsource and collect user-generated content for your map.

    We offer 2 options to add the user-generated content on your map

    • Batch import of the user-generated content using the Import Feature, or
    • Send the user-generated content in real-time to the map using the Mapme API

    If you choose to send the crowdsourced data in real-time, you can choose to have the data go live automatically. Alternatively, you might want to first moderate the new submissions and if the new content adheres to your guidelines, publish it to the live map.
