Just click on the tab for My Maps, give it a title, and start placing your points. The description boxes will take plain text, rich text, or HTML. Couldn’t be easier.
You can even save a KML file to overlay the information on Google’s Earth application.
The only problem with this great addition is that I’m scheduled to do a workshop on Google Maps and Earth next Tuesday.
Now I’ll have to spend some time this weekend playing with the new tools so I can revise my notes.
Thanks a lot, Google. :-)
