A collection of your Maps, Team Maps, and Maps Shared with you. You can Search these Maps by name, keyword, or Map ID. You can load the Map or a certain save variation of the map.
Only premium accounts have the flexibility to make the map public, private or secure. The default for the basic account is a public ScribbleMap.

More Information:256-bit AES encryption is a technique that uses a key length of 256 bits for this process. Because key combinations increase exponentially with key size, the AES-256 key has the mathematical equivalent of 2256 possible combinations. Using 256-bit AES encryption ensures your data is secure at rest.

More Information:PDF stands for Portable Document Format. It’s a document that can contain links and buttons, form fields, audio, video, and business logic. They can be signed electronically, and you can easily view PDF files on Windows or Mac OS using the free Acrobat Reader DC software. It was invited by Adobe back in 1991 by Adobe with the goal to enable anyone to capture documents from any application, send electronic versions of these documents from any application, send electronic versions of these anywhere and view them and print them on any machine.
Use Case / Example:Essentially, the format is used when you need to save files that cannot be modified but still need to be easily shared and printed. Today almost everyone has a version of AdobeReader or other programs on their computer that can read a PDF file. or Portable Document Format, is an open file format used for exchanging electronic documents. Documents, forms, images, and web pages encoded in PDF can be correctly displayed on any device, including smartphones and tablets. typically used to distribute read-only documents that preserve the layout of a page. They're commonly used for documents like user manuals, eBooks, application forms, and scanned documents, to name just a few.

More Information:A KML stands for Keyhole Markup Language. It is a file that has features like placemarks, images, polygons, 3D models, textual descriptions and overlays. XML notation expressing geo annotation and visualization for 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional earth browsers. Pinpoint locations, add image overlays. Keyhole was the original company that created Google Earth then was acquired by google.
Use Case / Example:The KML file specifies a set of features (place marks, images, polygons, 3D models, textual descriptions, etc.) that can be displayed on maps in geospatial software implementing the KML encoding. Each place always has a longitude and a latitude.

More Information:A GPX or (GPS exchange format file) is a text file with geographical information like way finding and routes. It is open format, not owned.
Use Case / Example:For GPS hardware devices. Used on a handheld offline GPS device, like if you were hiking. For example, if you were to walk a hike you would convert a GPX to KML or GeoJson and then import that file to Scribble Maps to see the trail you hiked. Not concerned with topology, edges from place to place.

More Information:A SHP is a file that stores information like points, lines and areas. It was designed by ESRI to work with the ESRI product ArcGis. The name ESRI stands for Environmental Systems Research Institute. The shapefile format is a geospatial vector data format for geographic information system (GIS) software. It is developed and regulated by Esri as a mostly open specification for data interoperability among Esri and other GIS software products. The shapefile format can spatially describe vector features: points, lines, and polygons, representing, for example, water wells, rivers, and lakes. Each item usually has attributes that describe it, such as name or temperature. A shapefile is a simple, nontopological format for storing the geometric location and attribute information of geographic features. Geographic features in a shapefile can be represented by points, lines, or polygons (areas). The workspace containing shapefiles may also contain dBASE tables, which can store additional attributes that can be joined to a shapefile's features.
Use Case / Example:If you were saving a file from ArcGis by ESRI to be used with Scribble Maps or vice versa.

More Information:DXF stands for drawing interchange format. A representation to show drawing files.
Use Case / Example:For AutoCad or Adobe illustrator. Say you draw a whole bunch of lines and maps on Scribble Maps and then import it Adobe or AutoCad. It would then show the lines you have drawn but not the base map. Drawing interchange format. A representation to show drawing files. Open Source AutoCad format Also works in Adobe illustrator. If you export into it, it would have the roads If you are using Autocad or adobe illustrator. Only your scribbles or marks not the map base info.

Use Case / Example:More Flexible than XML, a JSON is more compact and often more readable for humans and has a lot fewer special characters. A XML has brackets and symbols which takes up more bandwidth and storage space. People will still use XML only because it’s vendor locked in.

More Information:CSV stands for comma separated values. It’s a spreadsheet but instead of columns to separate the information it is using commas.
Use Case / Example:If you are using information to be saved or loaded from a spreadsheet. Like a Bill of Sale or Route Options.

More Information:A set of coding that is human-readable and machine-readable. Represents text documents where various parts of the text have special meaning. XML by itself doesn't really do anything. It's just a set of specifications for writing a file so that multiple computers/programs can understand it.
Use Case / Example:Data storage and transmission. ie: RSS feeds from a website XML is mainly used for data files so that programs can store and transfer data. Similar technologies include JSON, YAML, and so on. To enable screen reader support, press Ctrl+Alt+Z To learn about keyboard shortcuts, press Ctrl+slash.
More Information:Parcel data maps are digital parcel boundaries originating from deeds and surveys, that often contain attributes or characteristics of properties such as acres, buildings, ownership names, etc.
Use Case / Example:Parcel Data can help find out more about the homes, amenities and businesses in a particular neighborhood prior to making a purchase. They can also help to determine which locations would be impacted by the construction of a pipeline. Maybe someone needs to determine if a location is suitable or whether there could be more competition than initially expected.

More Information:A gigabyte is a specific unit of data that's equal to about 1 billion bytes of data. (1024 MB) The term gigabyte is typically used to describe the amount of stored data or the capacity of a storage device. For example, an HDD might offer 500 GB of raw capacity but is currently storing only 200 GB of data.
More Information:One million bytes.

More Information:NPS is a metric used in customer experience programs. NPS measures the loyalty of customers to a company. ... Promoters respond with a score of 9 or 10 and are typically loyal and enthusiastic customers. Passives respond with a score of 7 or 8. We use Wootric to measure our Internal NPS. https://dashboard.wootric.com/?account_token=NPS-520907a4#/.
More Information:Application Programming Interface OAuth2 allows authorization without the external application getting the user's email address or password. Instead, the external application gets a token that authorizes access to the user's account. OAuth 2.0 is the industry-standard protocol for authorization. OAuth 2.0 focuses on client developer simplicity while providing specific authorization flows for web applications, desktop applications, mobile phones, and living room devices. This specification and its extensions are being developed within the IETF OAuth World. https://oauth.net/2/ Scribble Maps Connect uses OAuth 2 to allow you to read user map data. If you have ever granted an application permission to your data, you will already be familiar with this process from a user perspective.
Use Case / Example:This is useful if you would like your users to be able to use Scribble Maps to generate geo data for your application.
