Using Google Maps for a Virtual Walk Tool 1

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

I was asked by a few people to explain how I used Google Maps to Create my own tour map. I'll give it a try.

First off you need to know how to get to Google maps. The URL is:
You can copy and paste this or click on this link.

The screen should look something like the picture above.

Before you attempt to create a map you need to create an account. This is free. I'm not 100% sure but you maybe able to create a map without an account but you wouldn't be able to save anything, so it would be pointless. You should be able to create an account without much trouble, so I won't try to lead you through that.

I'll be creating a new account and signing in with you to create our first map tomorrow... I hope.

By the way there is a good video for getting started if you look tword the top left of the screen and click on the "Learn More" link. It looks something like this like this.
