Get your own data from a Google Sheets into a custom featured Google Map with just a few clicks.
Plotting your own data onto a map is in great demand for businesses and individuals. Either to show each location details in an Infowindow or for filtering over the map based on several conditions, but also to find locations within a distance to a place and ultimately to calculate the optimal route directions for your next travel around.

For the first time, the Mapping Sheets add-on is providing an easy way to process your data directly from Google Sheets onto a map.

First BUILD: the Mapping Sheets add-on will process your data from Google Sheets and create a .json file in your Google Drive, ready for mapping. Then VIEW: the Mapping web app will gather that .json file and plot your data directly onto a map. 

Update: Mapping 4.0 is the default version since 2020-12-28, with a better look and performance, plus a bunch of new features and options.
■ Maps running on version 3.x will continue to work as before with the old Url
■ However, when updated they will require to use the new Mapping 4.0 Url
■ Special attention is required when using the Unattended BUILD option

➡ Mapping Sheets add-on
A Google Sheets add-on available within your own Spreadsheets under the Add-ons menu

⇨ Plans and Features
  ■ Basic Free Plan: Up to 50 locations per map. Includes all the basic (−) features.
  ■ Advanced Premium Plan (†): No restrictions in the number of locations per map. Includes all the basic (−) and advanced (+) features.
(†) Disclaimer: The Advanced Premium Plan does not avoid service errors, limitations and quotas like Google Geocoding daily quota limit exception, etc.
 ■ Extended Custom Plan: All of the above plus tailored solutions, workflows and integrations as per client requirements, upon request (∗).

⇨ Getting started with your data on Google Sheets
  ■ Enter all your data for mapping onto a sheet, or insert a demo sheet from the ⋮ menu
  ■ Select the 3 column headers you want to use for Title, Filter, and Location when building the map 
  ■ Click BUILD to process your data into a .json file in your Google Drive, ready for mapping
  ■ Click VIEW to open the Mapping web app and see all your locations on a Google Map
  ■ Check the User Preferences for more options and settings

⇨ Extended (Custom) Features and Roadmap:
Most of the features under the Basic and Advanced sections above started here, as an extended custom feature for some client(s), and later moved up to mainstream public features. Some of the features listed below would follow that path eventually, depending on actual demand and available resources.
The current status of these extended custom features vary from 'thinking-about-it' to 'working-for-some-clients' including 'designing', 'developing', 'limited-availability' and others in between. The sorting of the following list does not represent their current status, neither their priority, nor their perceived value.
Please, feel free to contact us through the support form if you are interested in any of these extended custom features or if you have a new feature request to include on this list.
∗ Additional routing options without optimization as listed (as-is) and reverse order
∗ Allow for manual sorting (drag and drop) on the Listing when showing less than 50 locations
∗ Writing custom code on post-processing the data, upon client request for specific project requirements
∗ Custom layers using Overlays, GeoJSON, KML & GeoRSS, OGC:WMS, OSM tiles, Isoline, Boundaries and others (extended details on the layers page as available)
∗ Options for export and import Preferences settings
∗ Drawing shapes (like circle, rectangle, polygon or even a freehand contour) on the map with the option to filter locations within
∗ Set a trip route directions on the map, then draw a buffer boundary at a distance around the route to filter locations within
∗ Get the weather forecast for a location on the map on a click from the Infowindow
∗ Use your own Info section (about) markdown content instead of the default by theXS
∗ Save the current map state (filters, panels, center, zoom) to reload it on the next time you open that map
∗ Find my location (find & follow me) options and center the map there with the choice of a filtering circle around
∗ Circle around that location that would activate on a click with editable radius, with the option to filter locations within its boundaries
∗ Add and update (editing) locations data in the source datasheet directly from the Mapping web app
∗ An option to show the full header name on mouse hover the headers in the standard Infowindow, useful when having too long headers in the datasheet
∗ Geocoding in bulk client-side for a large number of locations
∗ Filter select multiple values (select-dynamic) within a searchable list of unique values, but with dynamic content based on current visible locations
∗ Filter select date-after or date-before to show locations with dates either after (>=) or before (<=) the selected date
∗ Extra panel section in the sidebar with checkboxes, to switch on and off any extra layers (e.g. heatmap, circles, geoJSON and so on)
∗ Asset tracking as a realtime layer of ‘moving icons’ on the map
∗ Real time map update on form submit new data
∗ Save the json map data file in Google Firebase (storage), as an option to current Google Drive, to improve the loading for public maps
∗ Add a custom label to the location icons based on a selected header values and other options

Mapping Sheets has greatly improved the processes I run for logistics of the delivery services that I manage in Lisbon, Portugal. Because of this add-on, I easily save hours every week in managing the routes and locations of my customers. On-top of how useful the service is, the customer support team is incredible! They responded very quickly and have helped me with all my doubts, and inclusively gone out of their way to personalize something for me that makes my work even easier. 5/5 is an easy rating......not to mention that the price is stellar for how amazing this add-on works. Thanks XSheets team!

Super easy to use - simply list your locations and create a map with pins on it. The support team contacted me about an error I kept getting (underlying G-Suite issue) before I had even contacted them. I haven't used the routing yet, but the filtering, auto-zooming, and ability to add more data into the pop-up card from the pin is brilliant.
