Wemap

Description

Wemap is a powerful and intuitive way to transform your content into maps that you control through the creation of powerful ‘points’, the building blocks of smart maps, in just clicks.
Mobile-UX drives Wemaps’ design and product development initiatives so you can be assured that your maps look great on any device.
Each time you post a new article, you can create a new point for your audience – a multi-media rich(text, photos, videos, tags, date and more) point featuring your content.
You can also create and embed maps that contain multiple posts – developing guides, best of’s and to-do with your previously created content in just seconds.
Points, lists and even maps themselves are all shareable in one-click.
