We got a new giveaway for all icanbeCreative readers from SimpleMaps HTML5 World Map, a tool for creating useful interactive HTML maps for websites. You can win one of the 3 lifetime licenses ($79 to $199) for any individual HTML5 maps at SimpleMaps.com

Maps are used widely in web design and they are a big plus when it’s interactive when presenting data. You can use them to display statistics about countries, the branches of an international company or just destinations to visualize more clearly. What we specifically like about these HTML5 maps is the fact that they automatically detect mobile devices and adjust navigation to be touch friendly, the HTML5 maps look gorgeous on iPhones, iPads, Android devices and other tablets.

You can use it for creating an interactive infographic or perhaps you need to display geolocation information visually in your social networking app. These licenses are perfect for web designers and web developers who need to display mobile-ready and interactive world maps in their user interface designs, these maps are great visualizing geographic data or for improving website navigation. Like said, lots of uses for these maps.

SimpleMaps develops interactive HTML5/JavaScript maps. SimpleMaps can be easily customized in minutes using an intuitive spreadsheet-based online tool. SimpleMaps look great on mobile devices and degrade gracefully to support legacy browsers like IE7 and IE8.  These maps are very flexible and can be extended by using their JavaScript API.

Here are some real world examples of how you might use Simple Maps on your website.

Display Worldwide Locations – display any location such as Office Headquarters or store locations.
