PolicyMap is a CNET Webware Winner! | Widget Announcement

Introducing the PolicyMap “Widget”! PolicyMap now offers its subscribers an exciting new tool: the ability to embed fully interactive maps on your own websites.

What is a widget? Widgets are customizable instances of PolicyMap maps with dynamic features such as the ability to zoom into or pan across a map, click on an area to view the underlying data or toggle between additional data layers and points of data. Communicate with visitors to your website with a powerful interactive display of data relevant to your organization’s work.

PolicyMap has the unique ability to display data at a variety of geographies like block groups, census tracts, zip codes, congressional districts, cities, counties, MSAs, school districts and, of course, addresses. As you know, PolicyMap maps are clickable – giving you both the visualization of a heat map as well as the underlying data and information for any place you click on the map. Now, you can experience these maps right on your own website.

How can I create one? It’s simple. You decide what datasets and geography you want your website visitors to explore and we’ll build your widget and send you the HTML you need to embed it. You can find all the details on our website here: How to Build a Widget.

How much does it cost? Up to 3 widgets at a time can be available for free to Premium subscribers and at an additional $500 per year to annual Standard subscribers. Widgets are available to non-subscribers for $1,000 per year.

What are the next steps? Call or email us at or 866-923-MAPS (6277). At some point, we’ll have a “widget builder” where you can simply fill in a form online and create a widget for yourself. Until then, call us, tell us what you want and we’ll build it for you. It will generally take just a day or two.
