"In the past, only professional graphic designer and programmers were able to use advanced software to create sophisticated and interactive online maps, other people might be confused about how to get started and finally gave up because it is too technically challenging for them to build a map," says Godfrey Ko, Director of WebUnion Media Ltd, "nowadays, any non technical users without programming skills can also quickly build and customize a number of interactive maps, insert their own graphics, add text, and insert the resulting maps into web page for the world to see.’
