I arrive at work every morning to the sound of the Ghostbusters Theme Song (my designated work theme song). I then, along with my boss and founder of Mapline, promptly have a dance off. After we settle down, we wait for the other intern to come in. His arrival is shortly followed by all of us dancing to his theme song (Superman by Goldfinger). As I sit here and look around the office and the occasional pirate paraphernalia, I’m reminded that I didn’t expect any of this when I signed up for this internship. Nor did I expect myself to get excited about data mapping tools. But here I am, and I’m excited.
A Simple Mapping ToolFrom day one, I have been reminded over and over again that people using Mapline absolutely love it. They absolutely LOVE this Batch Geo alternative. It was actually a little off-putting. When I first started, I talked to users who were more excited about Mapline than me, and I work for Mapline! Over time, I’ve come to find three, overarching reasons that people love Mapline:
- It’s Simple
- It’s Powerful
- It’s Simple (Did I mention that already?)
