I have written twice before about Map Engine, an application that makes it easy for law firms to create attractive and interactive maps to visualize multijurisdictional surveys of laws, regulations or other data — first when it launched in 2021 and again earlier this year when it expanded its selection of maps to cover all major regions of the globe.

Now there are more updates to Map Engine to report, as it today announced the ability to add custom branding, the ability to create sets of maps to tell different data stories, and the addition of two new maps: North America and U.S. district courts.

Nicole Bradick, founder and CEO of the tech design and development firm Theory and Principle, which co-developed the product with the legal tech consulting firm Sente Advisors, said that custom-branding had been the top-requested feature from law firm users, who often post the maps on public- or client-facing sites.

The new map sets feature (pictured above) allows users to create a visualization that bundles more than one map together to tell a broader story than a single map can do. It could be used to show, for example, differences in a particular area of law across several regions, or different nuances of an area of law within one region.

With the addition of the North America map, Bradick said, users can now create map sets of full global surveys.

Access to the new custom branding and map sets features is available only to enterprise subscribers to the product. An enterprise subscription is $8,988 a year. It includes one regional template and unlimited maps, with the ability to purchase additional templates for $249 a month.

A lower-cost, one-user subscription is available for $2,988 a year. It includes one regional template and five maps.

Map Engine is running a promotion through August to allow users to purchase all global regions (North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa/Middle East, and Asia and Pacific) for a discounted rate.
