Map Maker 4Base map dataOther softwareWho we are
Map Maker 4 is software for professionals who need to make maps; people like foresters, estate managers, archaeologists, emergency services, ecologists, and many others. It has been designed so that you do not have to be a "GIS" professional to use it. The program comes in two versions - the "Pro" edition and a free version called "Gratis". We have been selling Map Maker Pro since 1996 in over 100 countries. Over the last two decades it has evolved in response to our user's needs. Version 4, released in 2016, is the latest manifestation. The price remains the same at 225 UK pounds (+ VAT in the EU) for a single-user licence. Existing users of Map Maker Pro are entitled to a substantial discount (see the Upgrade page of the shop). Download the full program for a 30 day free trial period.

Map Maker is designed for Microsoft Windows. It will run under Windows XP but we recommend Windows 7, 8 or 10. The program is supplied in both 32 and 64 bit versions. The minimum practical screen resolution is 1366 x 768 pixels but we recommend using a higher resolution.

Licences for Map Maker Pro are available for free to non-governmental, not-for-profit organizations, and educational establishments in Africa. The offer applies to African organizations, not to international organizations working in Africa.
