A card featuring all of MapChart Plus features
I am excited to announce that you can now join a new premium version of MapChart, called MapChart Plus.

MapChart Plus is the full map-making experience—with more advanced features that let you save maps and your favorite colors to your account, no ads, extra themes and more.

But first, a bit of a backstory.

Requested by you

MapChart has been around since 2014, and it has always been free to use. Millions of users have used it to create their own custom maps for their projects, their work, or just for fun.

All this time, there has been one request that periodically comes up:

Can I create an account with MapChart to save all maps that I create?

Building this has been on my radar for a long time, along with some other capabilities that only make sense for a premium version.

So today, I am happy to announce that it is finally available!

MapChart Plus is for users that want a more advanced experience.

With Plus, you can save your maps and your favorite colors to your account, so you don’t have to start from scratch every time. You’ll also get no ads, extra themes and more features that will make the map-making experience even better than it already is.

Here is a rundown of the Plus features:

The complete map-making experience

This version was developed over the past few months, to make MapChart even better and easier to use. With MapChart Plus, you can make maps that look great and fit your needs without worrying about limitations.

For example, you can:

  • Start editing the map of Europe with countries you have visited or want to visit.
  • Save your map to your Plus account (no need to download a text file any more!).
  • After a while, you want to update your map. You go to the Europe map, use the Load button and resume editing your visited countries map.
  • You make your updates and Save your map again to your account.
  • You can save your favorite custom colors or patterns and reuse them again.
  • You can use a Plus-only map theme as a starting template for your map.
  • Finally, all this can be done with the website set to a visually pleasing dark theme.

Here is a 1-minute preview video, showing some of the Plus features:

And the best part is that all the above can also be done seamlessly with the mobile app as well! You can start working on a map on the website, continue on the app, and then go back to the website. You are able to access all your maps, colors, and settings from any device or location.
