Product Review: Editable Maps from Presentation Mall

We’ve reviewed editable maps from BJDesign.com and have another for you to look at from PresentationMall. Both companies offer high quality editable maps. The main difference is their collections. One might have one thing you need while the other has something else you could use.

Many free maps you can find online aren’t editable or come in vector format. Vector format lets you resize anything without losing quality. If you try to make a detailed JPG or GIF larger, you’ll notice the quality goes down and the image becomes blurry or jagged.

PresentationMall has over 300 map versions in their collection including:

  • USA maps
  • US state maps
  • State maps with counties
  • Country maps
  • Regions
  • Continents
  • World maps

The maps come in the following formats (all are vector except JPG and GIF):

  • PowerPoint
  • WMF
  • Microsoft Word
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Editable PDF
  • JPG
  • GIF
  • Editable Flash

If you use the PowerPoint maps in your BBP presentation, you can color code every element or separate them to show territories. So sales people can define and build sales and marketing territories. You can also add your own elements to the maps, edit borders, separate counties, and change colors.

Below, I pulled out Prince George’s county in Maryland to highlight it and give it a different color. It only took a couple of minutes. The other image shows another map in the same general area except it highlights roadways and waterways instead of counties. The third one shows the counties along with the roadways.
