Go Beyond Google Maps Quickly
We love the people at Google Maps, what a great foundation that makes so many things possible, and for many people it’s all they will ever need. We just decided we wanted to make it easy to do more advanced, interactive and stylized things with Google Maps and make simple with configurable widgets.
The real reason to consider using an alternative to the basic look of GMaps is your client.
If your client is happy with basic pin maps then make an embeddable map and you and your client can move on along. If your client wants beautiful interactive fully styled maps and doesn’t mind spending less than 20 dollars and about 30 mins of your time then we are a solution that makes it easy to make maps that integrate well with a site’s look and feel.
What is a Welocally Place?
Our widget’s basic data model is founded around the welocally places. Simply put, a place is all the relevant facts about a real world location, like its name, location, phone number, and website. This data is then used to set the map location and create place cards or marker maps.

The place widget creates a pin card for a specific place. It perfect for showcasing a specific location. Of course all of the Google Maps Capabilities work also, so users can use street view to get curb appeal quickly.

Multi Places Widget
The multi places widget will automatically scale to the correct view bounds to include all the place markers. When a user selects a specific place marker details like website or phone number and driving directions become visible and the map will center.
