Over here at Proxi, we love all holidays. Christmas lights maps have the power to bring communities together and make for a safe and memorable holiday. In recent years, community leaders have been stepping up to provide these maps to their neighborhoods and communities. Yet we’ve learned (from experience doing this ourselves) that the current best solution — Google Forms and Google My Maps — is really hard to maintain as an admin. See our comparison of Google My Maps, MapMe, and Map Your Idea here.
That's why we built Proxi.. to put the power of mapping into communities and their passionate leaders. Your users can view and interact with the map in the same way as Google My Maps! It is easy as can be.
In less than 3 minutes start your FREE map on Map Your Idea (no catches, we promise):

- Type in a few map details. Click “submit”
- Land in the admin portal. feel free to change the categories, descriptions, and icons. You can insert a hex code or any image URL to use as icons.
- You will immediately receive an email with a secret admin link for you — you can add, edit, approve, upload, etc point here — and you will receive a sharing link that you can share with your community. On the sharing link, your community can add their homes with descriptions. If approval is turned off, the point will automatically appear on the map. If approval is turned on, you can simply activate the point in your admin panel to have it appear for the public.
