About us

Maps Marker Pro is a WordPress mapping plugin. Our main goal is to provide our users with an intuitive and user-friendly interface for organizing and sharing spots and tracks.  

The plugin is based on the famous leaflet.js library managed by Vladimir Agafonkin, which also powers maps on sites like Facebook, Flickr, Foursquare, Craigslist, Wikipedia and Washington Post. We use this library as the basis for our plugin and have integrated several other leaflet plugins for enhancing its functionality.

We are constantly improving our plugin: We frequently release updates and focus on high quality service and support for our users.
