This site is under construction

In the autumn 2020, you will here be able to download a web-based interactive map.
The download will be a zip file. You only have to extract the zip, and then upload the extracted files to a folder or subfolder on your site - and it will function right away.

the zip will be included with a start-database which will contain some few entries. This will make it easier for a start. Also detailed documentation will be delivered in the zip.
You should be aware that your site must use the https. If you are using the http then the app will function, but the GPS-navigation fearure will not function.

Until we have the zip ready, you can try out our demo.

In August 2020 we will have a pre-release ready for the PinDown. If you are interested in testing the app on your own site ( see also Download for information ), you could use the contact-form to contact us, and we could send you a zipped version of the PinDown. If the PinEdit ( for editing markers ) is ready at that time, it will be included in the zip.

You can find the demo here : Pindown demo

You should try the demo on a desktop to explore the possibilities.
You should try the demo with your mobile to explore the GPS function. Click the "GPS on" button to set it to on and click on a marker and start navigating by clicking the "Directions" button on the marker.
