10 Reasons for an Interactive Map by Wigglepixel

Wigglepixel is specialized in designing and programming creative and efficient custom made interactives and code-based animations for websites and touch screens.

Conventional maps are static. Once they have been created, they forever remain the same. An interactive instead is dynamic and can therefore contain dynamic animating content. The user experience can be tailored to the device and screen of the user.

In this blog I will tell you more about the benefits of interactive maps and floor plans.

Because we have seen Google Maps by now

1. Because we have seen Google Maps by now

All Google Maps and alike look exactly the same. They have not been innovative for years and these maps are everything but creative. In addition, you quickly run against a lot of restrictions and you do not want to compromise, right?

Your company deserves a unique custom interactive map

2. Your company deserves a unique custom interactive map

Your map will be fully custom made and programmed, exactly as you want.

There are virtually no technical or creative limitations. Fantasy is the limit. But that certainly doesn't mean that Wigglepixel reinvents the wheel. Through years of experience, specialization and daily knowledge expansion and innovation, Wigglepixel delivers high quality customization fast.

Interactive Maps of Wigglepixel are always built with responsive and adaptive techniques. This means that your map is displayed correctly on a wide range of screen sizes.

Whether visitors look at a smartphone, tablet, desktop computer or a large touchscreen screen at the fair, exhibition or in a park, the map always automatically adjusts itself to the screen for the best possible layout.

The map will be made for you in 2D, 2.5D or 3D

4. The map will be made for you in 2D, 2.5D or 3D

Maps can be delivered with a 2D or 3D layout / animations, or a mix of the two. Each variant has its own advantages.

Wigglepixel happily helps you to make the right choice for your map.

User data will not be on the street if you don't want it to

Privacy is becoming increasingly important. Especially with the new AVG legislation. If you use a product like Google Maps you can assume data of your users will be collected by external parties. Wigglepixel makes maps with its own techniques and in the base doesn't depend on those parties.

Links with other systems are possible for displaying dynamic data

Because the map is custom-made, connections can be made with all kinds of external data sources. External media can also be processed in the map, such as YouTube videos or social media.

Wigglepixel can also provide maps with a Content Management System (CMS), so that you can configure and adjust the data yourself.

The map can be integrated into your website, used standalone on a touchscreen, or both

7. The map can be integrated into your website, used standalone on a touchscreen, or both

Do you want to integrate the map on your website? Or display in a separate kiosk for visitors at a festival, camping or exhibition floor? Or maybe both?

Wigglepixel can make your interactive map suitable for both online and on a touchscreen of a kiosk with or without an internet connection.

Fluent and intuitive interactions and dynamic animations

8. Fluent and intuitive interactions and dynamic animations

An interactive map by Wigglepixel can have smooth, intuitive, attractive and seamless zooms and animations as required. But in addition there could also be many types of other animations on the map itself.

From a simple route animation to a map full of animating parts in 2D or 3D. Such as moving cars, animating amusement park attractions, animating visitor information etc.

Because these are always real time animations, they can be programmed so that they are adapted live to changing circumstances and data of all types and sizes, such as the weather forecast, traffic information, sensors, visitor numbers on the stock market or something like that.

The map can be measured via analytics and can be shared via social media if you like

9. The map can be measured via analytics and can be shared via social media if you like

You want to share a map, integrated on your company website, with the rest of the world via social media and generate traffic to your website?

Integration with Google Analytics or feedback to which other tracking system to measure visitor data?

No problem.

The map will be technically fully optimized for the best performance

10. The map will be technically fully optimized for the best performance

A high loading speed of your online map is essential. This is crucial, especially on mobile devices.

Does loading the map take a long time or are animations running slow? Then the modern visitor is gone soon. Who likes to wait?

Wigglepixel always ensures that your map is as optimized as possible and has years of experience in specialistic optimization techniques in the field of interactives and online animations.
