Gone are the days when creating an interactive map was a cumbersome and prolonged undertaking that only the tech-savvy could accomplish. GIS and cartography were prerequisites, followed by a tedious coding stage to bring the map to life. However, technological advancements have enabled anyone to build an interactive map with minimal coding knowledge using tools like Proxi.
Still, crafting a custom interactive map these days means an hour or two of research, compiling map points, and meticulously plotting coordinates. With MapsGPT, map-making is as simple as filling in a sentence. A few words, and voila! A fully-fledged, one-of-a-kind map is at your fingertips, ready to be customized and explored.
With MapsGPT, the quest for the perfect location is a breeze. Simply provide it with two pieces of information: what you're searching for and the vicinity you want it in.
Whether you're hunting for the newest coffee shops, hiking trails, or hotels, fill in the blanks and let MapsGPT work its magic. A map populated with a curated selection of locations will appear before your eyes in mere seconds—no fuss, no muss, and no wading through pages and pages of search results.
What Can I Do With MapsGPT?
We've all been there, scrolling through Google Maps, frantically trying to find that one particular spot, but what happens once you've found it? It disappears into the digital abyss, never to be seen again.
But what if there was a way not just to find that perfect location but to keep it, make an interactive map your own, and share it with others? That's where MapsGPT comes in.
Once you've generated your custom map, the possibilities are endless:
- You can rerun the prompt and expand the scope of your search;

And remember the essentials. You can use MapsGPT to find local stores that sell the things you need, like Walmarts, farmers' markets, or even firewood for cold nights.
If you're new to a place, it can be overwhelming to figure out how to spend your time. The options can be endless, from finding the best local food to fun activities and must-see sights.

How Does MapsGPT Work?
We take the your request and use our integration with OpenAI to generate the array of locations. Our Proxi technology then converts those results into specific geographic coordinates, creating a pinpoint location on a map. The map also includes additional information about the area, providing a more holistic understanding of the place you are interested in.
Tips For Using MapsGTP
Explore maps created by others for ideas and inspiration. Also, if the results you are getting don't meet your expectations, feel free to change your query or start over. One way to refine your search is to include more specific criteria in your request. For example, instead of searching for bars in general, try searching for local breweries or even breweries that allow pets. It's important to remember that the more specific your query, the more accurate your results will be.
Instead of searching for "restaurants," try searching for "vegan restaurants" or even "vegan and gluten-free options restaurants" This would give you more specific results and display the map of the places that fit within that particular category.
Another example could be searching for "outdoor activities"; instead, try searching for "hiking trails" or "rock climbing spots" this would display the map of places that fits in those specific categories and will be helpful for those interested in those activities specifically.
You could also use other specific filters such as "bike rental locations," "public transportation options," or " kid-friendly destinations," which also can give you more precise and accurate results.
Additionally, when searching for places, include location details such as state or even specific street addresses if you want to get more specific.
