iMapping Tool is now Infinity Maps
Infinity Maps is the new iMapping tool
In the following article we would like to inform users of the iMapping tool and interested people about the adaptation and further development of the iMapping tool: Infinity Maps is the new and only software that implements the iMapping method. Read on for more insights. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Infinity Maps replaces iMapping Tool
The iMapping tool, developed by co-founder Dr. Heiko Haller, was the first software to support the innovative visual information organization method of the same name, the iMapping method. The iMapping tool has been distributed since 2009, but no updates have been available since 2017. Founded in its history as a research prototype, since then the technical requirements have not been met to keep pace with current and upcoming technological innovations.
A new cloud software, Infinity Maps, has been available since 2020, enabling new contemporary functionalities such as public interactive iMaps and real-time collaborative work. A side note for our iMapping users: Undo and Copy Cards are now also possible.
Easy migration from iMapping tool to Infinity Maps
Your existing iMaps created with the iMapping tool can be used and edited with Infinity Maps. After registration upload your .iMap files to Infinity Maps and get started right away. The layout has been optimized so that the maps now appear in a modern design. Since we are currently still working on the optimization of the import, a little love is needed after uploading an iMap to adjust to the new layout. If you have any questions, please contact us.

We are continuously working on further developments and additional features to ensure that Infinity Maps always meets the latest quality standards. Unlike the old iMapping tool, Infinity Maps always provides you with the latest version with regular improvements and enhancements. We inform about product updates on the blog and in the newsletter. The exchange with our users is very important to us, so you can always contact us directly or use the feedback board for your suggestions, requests or questions.
Since we take data protection very seriously, we run Infinity Maps exclusively on servers in Germany – at our trusted hosting partner Hetzner Online GmbH. Furthermore, we do not allow any external parties to access your data. No advertising networks, no profiling services and statistical surveys only after your consent.
We make encrypted backups of our servers several times a day. You’ll also soon be able to create your own backups of your maps, which you can store yourself and upload back to the app. You can read more about this topic on the Security page. Do you have special data security requirements? Feel free to contact us.
In addition to the web app, we plan to launch a native app in the future that you can install on your computer or mobile device. These apps will then also allow you to work on your maps offline and decide what content you want to put on our cloud servers.
Your company only uses self-hosted solutions? We would be happy to inform you on this.
If switching from the old iMapping Tool to Infinity Maps is not an option for you, or you want to use both softwares, you can still download the free version of the iMapping Tool or purchase the full version of it. Feel free to contact us, we are interested in the background so we can get better faster.
