What are the TopPlace™ Map Layers for Google Maps?

The Map Layers for Google Maps are a specially designed set of map layers that can be easily added as a widget on top of a Google map. These layers provide users with essential location context by highlighting the most popular areas in any city, or showing the metro stations and lines in major cities.

The Map Layers are a great addition for Travel, Real Estate and Housing-on-Demand (mid-stay) websites that use Google as their base maps provider. The layers can be displayed on the search results map, or the property details map.

Alternatively, our clients can choose to use our map tiles, which are available as part of the product at no additional cost. This translates into huge savings. More information here.

TopPlace™ Map Layers for Google Maps gives users more information when searching for a place to stay. It displays public transportation, as well as Heat Maps illustrating the most visited spots for activities like Sightseeing, Eating, Shopping and Nightlife. This allows users to quickly gain an understanding of the most popular spots in a city, through informative map overlays.

The widget allows an easy and fast implementation. There’s no need to create an interface to use the TopPlace™ layers, as the UI buttons come ready made. It takes less than 1h for a front-end developer to integrate.

Why are TopPlace™ Map Layers for Google Maps relevant for your business?

We‘ve all heard the phrase “Location, location, location!”, emphasizing how important it is to take into account the location when booking a place to stay or purchasing a home.

The location of a hotel, apartment, or house can greatly influence its desirability and price. Many people are willing to pay more for a reservation if they know that the location is optimal.

Users need an efficient and reliable way to become more knowledgeable and confident in their booking decisions, especially when booking in unfamiliar destinations. By providing them with the resources to select the best accommodations, without having to leave the booking site, user retention, user satisfaction and booking rates can be increased.

The process of collecting, processing, extracting, and converting the necessary information into a usable format for listing websites is timeconsuming and laborintensive. However, having sufficient meaningful location data is still worth the effort. At AVUXI we have done all the hard work for you.

With TopPlace™ every listed accommodation can be accompanied with essential location context after a quick and simple “copy-paste” integration.

At AVUXI we are obsessed with helping our customers to provide useful and contextually relevant location content on their sites. We strive to make it a simple process, with an affordable and very quick setup.
