MapXL, Inc. is a California based subsidiary of Compare Infobase Limited, a premier cartography and GIS company developing & creating maps, and map products for over 18 years. We work in three distinct business domains: Mapping Portals (online), Mapping Projects (custom services), and Mapping Products (Ecommerce).
Since its humble beginnings, maps have opened up new ways to look at the world we live in. Contemporary maps have become an excellent platform to combine different pieces of information, data, and ideas seamlessly. The wonder of mapping and cartography is still evolving, and new ways of uniting knowledge with geography have become entertaining and innovative ways to connect with our audience.
The simple answer is, everything has a root, whether you are talking about culinary traditions or the climate of a place. A map provides a bird’s eye view, an entire picture, and can explain the root of a theme.
For example, if you own a creole restaurant and wonder what to put up on the wall, a customized map of creole cuisine and how it evolved and matured in different parts of Louisiana could be a great idea. Or if you want to decorate a classroom, and have students from a very diverse background, a customized map is the best way to celebrate individual cultures of the student population.
There are of course, other academic uses of the good ol’ map. If a picture can speak a thousand words, a map can speak ten thousand. This is best illustrated by historical maps. For example, the best way to teach the history of the American Revolution to new students, is to use a map which merges historical events with the spatial geography. It makes much of the details clearer teaching with maps. This create a deeper understanding, and has a greater impact than just plain texts. (Text, as in books, not instant messages!)
And of course, a world map is a charming addition to any study room. It’s an essential component of any home, office, or school.We not only sell 'regular' maps, but maps with niche categories, like World Tourism Map, World Map of Fault Lines, Map of the World Best Shopping Destinations, and a whole range of US-centric maps. Some of the best-sellers are US Map with Capitals, USA River Map, USA Airports Map, Museums of USA, and USA County Map.
Another classic application for maps is thematic representations. Thematic maps are maps with a focus on a particular aspect like say, historical, cultural, technological, or economic data. Maps are one of the best ways to look at the bigger picture, and now with advanced technology, you can select which part of the picture you want to focus on. For example, we can create for you a map of American cities with top GDPs, or maps that focus on natural resources, climatic conditions, social characteristics, or nearly any topic you can think of!
The possibilities are limitless, and your imagination are the only boundaries. Creating and designing the best map is our only ambition, and we deliver it with great passion. We are lucky to have a wide customer base throughout the world, and are greatly humbled with their generous loyalty.
This is why we always try to understand our customers personally, and deliver on your exact needs. Please feel free to contact us for any questions, queries, or quotes on custom maps. We would love to assist you with all your mapping and cartographic needs. Read Less
