My Maps
More Google Goodness
Greetings Sequoyah, 

I am a huge fan of Google Maps and Google Earth. It is amazing what has been accomplished over the past few years. In Google Maps when a location is saved it puts a star on your map. The saved location is also sent to Google Bookmarks. The Google Maps shows on the computer and a mobile device. It is a great way to save important locations. One drawback is that map with saved locations can not be shared as a map to others. Enter...

A direct offshoot of Google Maps the My Maps feature online allows the user to save places on a map. Change the icon, add a description. And the map is shareable with anyone. Going to a conference with group? Mark places of interest, dining, venues, and share with the group. A great way to create a location based itinerary. 
I put together a map of some of my favorite places in Santa Fe. My brother lives there and knows all the cool spots to visit. https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zEUkrxpfVvus.kxsXAq-jKUjE&usp=sharing
