Google Maps newest addition, My Maps


My Maps is a new feature added to Google Maps. With My Maps, you can easily place markers anywhere on a Google Map, draw lines to indicate a path, and add photos and video to your markers. You can customize your markers to represent specific types of locations, publish your maps to the web, and share them with friends and family. The one thing I wish they added is tabs located within the markers so you could view details about the location in one tab and then view photos and videos in another tab. Oh well, you can’t have it all. I’ll definitely be using this for mapping out camping trips I’d like to take this summer. Here’s my screencast tour of My Maps:
