Creating interactive maps for the web is a complex task. In this paper, we present mapmap.js, our approach to designing a high-level API that supports the creation of interactive thematic maps. We discuss the at-tributes high-level, transparent, data-driven and horizontal with respect to mapping APIs and argue why these are desirable qualities, and give an overview of some aspects of the design of the API. Examples implemented using mapmap.js are presented and discussed in the concluding section.
