I am looking for a site that will do the following for free:

  • Allow me to upload a map of a world (either URL or file, I don't mind).
  • Allow me to tag/label that map, to mark the locations of thing (either plain text, or URL links).
  • Host the image.


  • Let me change/update the image without wiping the tags (as the map becomes more detailed)
  • Allow multiple people to edit the tags/labels.

Note: I am aware that I could add the information on my own computer and then load the map up to somewhere like imgur. That is my backup plan.
Note 2: Please do not post answers to things that you think might work.

    $\begingroup$ There is a site that I used a couple of months ago that makes more or less what you are looking for. It closed several weeks later and then reopened but it's not possible to sing in and I'm not sure if the site is still the same. They made a lot of changes it seems. I think it was not free but I'm not 100% sure and this might have changed as well. I can ping the creator of the site for you. He's here. $\endgroup$

Working free map editors as of today include:

Feel free to alter this list as new options arise or old ones go down. I only looked into online map editors here, there might be suitable ones that need local installation.


Use Google Drive. When you create a new document, click 'more' and you have the option to create a Google Drawings document. You can insert your map as a picture (upload or URL) and then make the labels using text boxes. The labels can be freely edited and changes will show up real-time to viewers.

You can control access so that the document is publicly viewable. Click the 'Share' button in the upper-right hand corner and then click 'Get shareable link.' All you have to do is give someone the link and they will be able to see your map! You can then enable editing either for all viewers or just for a few specified accounts.

Hope this helps!
