RiMap - interactive map server

      Create own map server on your site with RiMap. RiMap plots interactive street maps of USA cities, towns and villages. Script uses data from Census TIGER/Line files, converted into own binary format.

      You can plot different layers of data and add your own data to be plotted over created image. Script can be used in connection with store locator or on real estate site to show location of your stores or available property to your customers.

      RiMap is written in Perl and does not require any external GIS software, therefore it can be used practically on any webserver and you can easily modify it or add new features. Short description of script with list of features and configuration options can be obtained here.

      Core functions of this script are released under GPL license. Extended version with additional functions (see demo below) can be obtained for small fee.


  • Script plots US highways, state highways, local roads, railroads, rivers and shoreline of oceans, lakes and big rivers.
  • Some area features (like rivers, lakes, parks or forests) can be shaded with different colors.
  • Zooming and paning function.
  • Street labels are attached to streets.
  • Labels for schools, parks, cemeteries, airports, hospitals, lakes and churches can be displayed (not in free version).
  • Maps can be created for given geographical coordinates (in free version) and for city, ZIP-code or exact street address (in paid version).
  • Data layers can be turned ON/OFF.
  • Configurable color schemes.

Why RiMap?

  • RiMap is the only map server written in Perl. You don't have to compile and install any executables, it will work on any webserver with Perl and GD library installed.
  • Script is completely platform independent, you can test it on local computer and then easily transfer to server.
  • RiMap can be ordered with huge dataset covering entire USA or with small dataset for one county only.
  • RiMap can be easily integrated into site design using templates and color schemes.
  • Unlimited number of locations and POI (points of interest) can be added and plotted on maps.
  • New features can be programmed for additional price.
