Map Engine is the complete Map plugin, the features from marker, polygon, circle, lines, and square, the most complete feature with manual drawing, manual drawing is my favourite. if there is a feature to add hyperlinks and add multiple map IDs in one shortcode then this plugin is perfect. Thank You & Best Regards for Map Engine team.

The plugin allows us to add a map to posts and pages with a marker. The last plugin we were using had a vulnerability and was disabled.

The plugin is awesome! The only issues have been that google doesn’t autofill suggests, so I have to enter longitudes and latitudes, and that I can’t add links to the map cards. Otherwise, great experience.

Fantastic plugin with easy to use map feature editor. We found this better than other map plugins as it properly supports creating polygons and has support for a variety of base map layers (including OpenStreetMap and Satellite Maps without requiring API key). Plugin authors also responded to queries really quickly and the plugin is in active development (we were informed a new release is coming soon)
