When I first figured out how to customize Google Maps, I was excited. I was able to draw shapes, put special icons down and text with links. It’s one of best tools I’ve used. This became especially handy when the first fires started breaking out throughout the State of California in 2008. I didn’t have to wait for the IT folks to figure out how to build a map, I just did it within minutes and embedded the code so it would show on the front page of the emergency management agency.
Well, I’m thrilled to show you there’s now a more flexible way to customize a standard Google Map – It’s called Scribble Maps. This is really cool because you can literally scribble on a big map, add icons (more than Google Maps has) and it has a very intuitive interface.
Go and play with it. Think of the ways you could use this at your work or even to explain something specific.
