We think Mapbox might be the best solution out there. It’s an open-source library built on Leaflet.js, and its customizability is unrivaled. As a new service from the studio: you can skip a week of learning to set it up, we’ll package all that. We will get you mapping events right away for a one-time, fixed $120 fee.
We will setup your Mapbox account and an API key, provide a working starter map, plus our own quick 500 lines of code to let it translate your private Google Sheet into its preferred JSON format.
A mapPAK is the best of both worlds: the ease (and ubiquity) of Google Docs, all the future flexibility of Mapbox.
Over time, you can build out any functionality you might want your map to have.
What’s inside the PAK:
(An API key is your ‘authorization code’ to make server requests to the Mapbox service.)
Mapbox operates on a freemium model. And the Free Tier is extremely generous: your map can be loaded 50,000 times each month and still remain free. This is more than plenty for most cases, unless you go trending on Twitter (which is a good problem to have!)

For the fixed fee, we have to limit our design time to 1 hour… but over time, you can always customize this further. Even by yourself!

If you already have geocoordinates, great! Otherwise your data will need a street address + state (+ country), and our script can have Google calculate the Lat/Long for you.

Broadcast your custom mapt.site, or embed the link in other pages, or just integrate the code into your existing site!
To keep hosting your map in Year 2, we guarantee the first renewal price at $18 ($1.50/month, just to cover our costs). Of course at any time, you can take your code and host it elsewhere, and stop renewing with us.
