Do More With Google Maps

I just came across the following presentation by Richard Byrne (@rmbyrne) on his Free Technology for Teachers blog.  This is a great introduction into getting more out of Google Maps.  Some of the features he covers include the following:
  • Changing views and activating information layers
  • Adding Maps Labs features
  • Measuring distances
  • Creating and saving a personalized map
  • Adding collaborators to a personalized map
  • Adding placemarks
  • Embedding links, images, and videos into placemarks
  • Drawing paths between placemarks
I thought I knew Google Maps, but always manage to learn something new from Richard.  A big thanks to him for sharing his slides and his knowledge.
