Unique features

Multiple map projections

JavaScript Maps supports popular map projections on all maps out-of-the box: Mercator, Winkel trippel, Eckert 3, Eckert 5, Eckert 6, Miller, and Equirectangular.

You can even switch the projections on the fly via API.

Advanced image animations

Animate any image on the map with just a few config options. The map will take care of every detail – speed, size, trajectory and even rotate your image to face the direction it is moving to.

Motion-maps

Using some additional coding you can easily have motion-maps which change data at run time and illustrate how it changed during some time period. Check this motion-map demo, (click MAP tab on the top) which is based on the famous Gapminder widget. It is made using our charting and mapping library with some stuff from jQuery UI.
