Welcome back to the Finding Your Way with Google Maps Series.
With your Google Maps account you have the ability to create your own maps that you can share with others to view as well. These maps can contain lots of information and you can create as many of them as you like. First click on create a map then give your map a name. I'll choose just Parks. Next add a description. You can choose to make this map public so other people can find it or private to keep it to yourself.
You can also invite other people to collaborate and add things to your map. Just enter in your email address and decide if they can add people to collaborate and allow anyone to edit this map. Now you can add things to the map. The hand tool allows you to drag the map around. The marker tool allows you to place a marker on the map. Just drop it where you want to mark a spot then you can give it a title and the description. You can change the icon that associated with it.
And if you choose rich text you can add things like links, highlight words and even add photos by simply entering in the URL. The line tool allows you to draw lines between two points. Just click and drag your line and click again to change direction. You can add information to the line just like I did for the marker.
You can also draw shapes just click to try your shape and then double click when you're done. If you double click on your shape you can change the details of it like the line color. Everything you do on the map will be located here so you can easily find it and edit it later.
If you right click on one of your markers you can do things like delete it, get directions from that location, zoom in and out and center them up here. Once you're done click done.
Remember there are ten parts to this series so don’t forget to check out the other episodes in the Finding Your Way with Google Map Series.
