Maker!, a new map making tool, launched today as part of the relaunch of FortiusOne's GeoCommons. Maps can be created in Maker! using your own data and/or GeoCommons’ open data.
Maker! allows users to customise the look of maps. The colours, line styles, types of marker and number of data classes can all be set by the user. It is possible to create Choropleth Maps (coloured heat maps), Proportional and Graduated Symbol Maps (different sized markers to reflect proportions) and Reference Maps, which show the location of geographic features, such as plotting the paths of the major waterways of North America or the location of oil wells in a country.
