Comments For This Page

Hi, you can use https://www.freemaptools.com/how-far-is-it-between.htm to find the distance between the places. So 130km between NTY and Philadelphia. The make the circles on this page half that or a bit more to get some overlap. So, 80km radius gives:
"Philadelphia, PA, United States",0,80,red
"New York, NY, United States",0,80,blue

I want to be able to make circles around 2 points where I click so that the concentric circles meetup. Say Where are the halfway points between Philadelphia and NY City?

Is it possible to create Square or Rectangle on the map

Hi, thanks for the feedback. You have a good point. It has now been changed so that it will not clear the textbox, but has some sample values to start.
By Free Map Tools on 22nd July 2016

Could you stop the textbox clearing on click? Whenever I want to make an adjustment I have to retype the whole lot again! Great feature though. It would be wonderful if you could combine this with the drive time radius tool.

Hi Didier, can you try the option [Save Concentric Circle] then export the XML? You need to save the data then it will appear inside the XML.

Hi, nice job ! I draw a test, it seems ok on screen. But when I export as ".xml", the file .xml doesn't include polygon and ... Only: 2 tests, but always the same result

Hi Lindsay, there is nothing we are aware of. Any tests at this side show it is still working.
By Free Map Tools on 1st March 2016

Hi, although I've used this alot in the past it no longer seems to be working. Is there currently a problem with this map?

Hi John, you could save your Excel spreadsheet as CSV and copy/paste the raw text in to the text box on this page. As long as the columns are in the correct order ... lat,lng,start radius, end radius, colour
By Free Map Tools on 28th January 2016

This is excellent, but can I import data from an excel datasheet into a map to create points based on Lat and Long.
By John on 27th January 2016

Looking on my globe, "Reykjavik",0,3000,blue should make a circle covering North Pole and parts of northern Russia. However, I get a bottle shaped "circle" which seems to abandon the map

The user menu is a great option. Thanks!
