I am curious, is it possible to include placemarks with a map in the PDF Maps Store?  Say I have a trail map that I want to put on the Maps Store.  Can I include placemarks at particular locations that will be downloaded to the user's device with the map itself?

I don't think so, but you could include the bit.ly url in the map details? Or point them to your website etc.

At the moment it is not possible to bundle together a map and a set of placemarks although this is indeed something we wish to add and plan on adding. In the meantime you can do as David suggested and create a URL to a KML or KMZ file and users of PDF Maps can execute that on their device and have those placemarks added to their map or maps.

The maps in the PDF Maps Store are GeoPDF or GeoTiff. If they're vector they're rasterized and tiled for viewing on the device, so the best way to add intelligence to the map is to provide a KML/KMZ with placemarks.

 

Also... you can sell that bonus information :)
