Google Maps Engine Alternatives
« on: 31 December 2016, 06:52:57 »
This blog post from Safe Software entitled 6 Google Maps Engine Alternatives summarises the alternatives that people could consider when Google announced the end of Google Maps Engine. (Vector and raster data in Google Maps Engine (GME) disappeared on January 29, 2016.)

They suggest that Google Maps Engine provided
  • A place to store your geographic data in a web-based environment
  • Powerful visuals for inspecting and analyzing your data
  • Easy collaboration on maps
  • Real-time capabilities like dynamic rendering, alerts and notifications

Their list of alternatives is:
  • ArcGIS Online
  • CartoDB (now Carto)
  • iSpatial
  • A combination of Google products
  • Mapbox
  • Your own custom integration (using their own FME tool)
