Print Maps for Destination Marketing

We work with you to create printable maps that can help promote your business or community. Our maps can be used in brochures, map sets or as stand-alone maps. Whether you want a map that you can hand out to visitors or one that you can sell, we can make something that will meet your needs. The maps can be created in collaboration with your design team or we can do the work for you. You select what you want to show and how you want it to look.


Custom Interactive Maps and Apps

Want a web map or app that highlights what makes your community special or that helps people find your member businesses or events? We can create one map for your community or organization or we can do set of maps, each highlighting a different activity. You pick what information will be on the map, either by category or by selecting specific places. We can customize the colors and links so it is an integrated part of your marketing effort.

Custom web maps and apps can focus on a single activity, all activities in a region or they can act as an index, providing links to areas covered in newspaper or magazine stories. They can also include select businesses—such as hotels or member organizations.

We have developed a set of ten maps for Kittitas County. Each map focuses on a specific activity. As you zoom in you see hotels, as well as other resources related to that activity, because the maps are funded through the lodging tax.

Information is constantly being updated—we regularly verify information about places and add new places, and any changes you identify will be posted within 72 hours.


Discover WA Maps and Apps to Promote your Community, Event or Business

If you want a low-cost option to promote your community, you can link to or embed any of our advertiser-supported community maps at no cost. You can use the full state map—or have the map load centered on your area.

If we are missing any information about public recreation in your community, you can add it for now cost. It will become part of these maps and be available for all uses.


Data for Destination Marketing and Tourism Studies

Organizations that do their own mapping or need data for analysis can subscribe to the Washington Hometown data to create better maps and apps.  We offer a rich set of data that includes detailed information for each record.  We are constantly improving our data by updating records and adding new places. If you see things that are missing or need to be changed, let us know and we will get the updates posted within a week. You pick the places you are interested in (type of place and area), the data format (we can provide all data formats plus a table output), and the attribute format (raw or web optimized). Each data set includes point, line and polygon layers. Additional sets—with different filters, attribute formats and fields, or data formats—are available for a small fee. Data can be selected based on more than 200 attribute fields and clipped to a boundary.

With a data subscription, you can focus your efforts on creating the look and selecting the places. No more maps that are missing recreation resources or showing places that are long closed.
