Maptoolkit (MTK) is a fully fledged map API built on top of Openlayers and Google Maps API. It is all your mapping needs in a box. Plus optional topographic cartography down to zoom level 17, worldwide, between 72dpi and 300dpi.
MTK is unique in terms of scalability and flexibility, as it comes with performant index servers to index and mirror your geo data for maximum scalability. Have a look at our showcases.
Take the Quiz: Is Maptoolkit the right technology for my project?
Without clusterings browser start to become slow at 100 POIs or so. We have developed server side clustering that enable you to use hundrets of thousands of POIs in one map if you wish.
Interactive Example: Try it out!
But look closely: Our clusters don’t just solve a technical problem – they actually improve the user experience with functions like heatmap functionality and multi-zoom. (Btw: There are plenty of different cluster styles available, not just the square ones above.)
Flexibility and simple integration
Maptoolkit is not just technology – it comes preloaded with millions of POIs from various sources: Sights, restaurants, photos, videos, sport routes, cafés, current weather, etc. You can choose per each map view which data you display, and how. Of course your data can equally be displayed, clustered and fulltext-searched, too! You can also enable your users to contribute data (POIs, routes, areas): Maptoolkit features to excellent geodata editor that you can test drive on Bikemap.net.
The MTK Filmstrip is just one of many examples of data and interfaces that comes with MTK. Try moving the map somewhere else!
All Maptoolkit customers have the possibility to open their geodata for sharing by specific or all other Maptoolkit customers. This creates a win-win-situation between our customers – data for traffic. Also, powerful APIs in both (!) directions give you full control over your data.
Advanced map controls
All our maps and data types can be used with advanced features like fulltext search, automatic permalinks, fullscreen mode, location search, etc. Highly configurable. All interaction modes are automatically optimized for touchscreen usage on devices such as iPhone, iPad or Android.

Powerful administration backend
The admin backend, while fully optional, enables you to view and edit your geo data, set global settings and most of all: Give your staff a powerful yet supereasy-to-use MapWizard with which one can create maps and data mashups with just a few clicks. CMS integration (into the CMS of your choice) makes adding a map to an article as easy as adding an image! Let us demo you the tool in a meeting – we’re just scratching on the surface here.
Maptoolkit is not only optimised for high numbers of POIs but also high traffic: Sophisticated caching algorithms make high numbers of map requests a breeze. MTK is built to scale.
