Mapize makes mapping easy and simple. Now you can map thousands of coordinates in just a few short steps. All you really need to map multiple locations is your data and Mapize’s latitude and longitude finder tool.
Mapize’s smart tools are designed for ease of use without compromising the quality of results. With Mapize, you can quickly and easily plot multiple geographic coordinates on a map – from tens, hundreds, or even thousands of latitudes and longitudes. All it takes are three simple steps:
- Open the spreadsheet containing your map coordinates.
- Copy and paste the spreadsheet data into the Mapize homepage’s location data box.
- Generate your map by clicking on the “Map Now” button. (You also have the option to “Set and Validate” your data to ensure that all the information is correct and in the proper columns.)
And you’re done! You can also head over to Entering Coordinates Into Maps for more details on how to create custom maps using multiple coordinates. Utilize these steps when you have GPS coordinates or a GPS location and you want a coordinate finder tool to assist you.
Coordinate Format Types
Map coordinates in the form of decimal degrees are the most common type.
A sample decimal degree format looks like this: 44.4604788, 110.8281375
When pasting these map coordinates into Mapize’s mapping tool, make sure that the latitude and longitude values are in separate columns — the latitude values should always be entered first, and the longitude values second. You can also assign negative or positive values to your latitude and longitude pairs depending on which hemisphere they are found.
Degrees, Minutes, Seconds and Other Formats
When you can’t get your hands on latitude and longitude coordinates in degree format, Mapize can also work with other formats available. When using formats other than the degree format, you only need to populate a single column with the heading, “Location.”
Again, the coordinate pairs may be negative or positive as determined by their hemisphere. Even when using a single column for all the coordinates, you should still list the latitude coordinates first, followed by the longitude GPS coordinates.
Examples of Other Common GPS Data Formats:
Degrees Minutes Seconds (DMS): 44°27’37.7237″, 110°49’41.2950″
Degrees Minutes (DM): 44°27.62873′, 110°49.68825′
Directional Degrees Minutes (DDM): 44°27.62873’N 110°49.68825’W
There’s a likelihood that your map coordinates will be among the listed ones above but if it isn’t, follow the guideline listed above.
When you are making a map with multiple locations, Mapize will assist you. Plot coordinates on a map online with ease. Besides working with map coords, our smart tool is also a mapping program for multiple addresses. You can pinpoint multiple locations and find the fastest route on a multiple-location map.
Utilize a multiple address mapper with Mapize’s convenient and interactive maps with your data sets today.
