- Maps are used to tell the user where something is (you know, like a hotel or a floorplan).
- They are used to present geographical data.
- Relevant entities on a map are usually marked with pins or markers that can be touched or clicked to reveal more information.
- Use maps meaningfully.
- Maps work best when the user needs to see proximity between two or more locations.
- Avoid showing maps that cover too wide of a geographical area, as the map’s contents will be too zoomed out to be legible to the user.
- Ensure maps support native gestures on mobile such as pinch, zoom, or pan.
- Avoid introducing unfamiliar gestures or interaction patterns.
- Disable zoom by default so that the map doesn’t move as the user scrolls within a view.
- Enable zoom after the user clicks or touches a map.
- Consider providing zoom controls on maps.
- Avoid unusual or hard to identify styles for pins and markers.
- Keep it familiar for users.
