Google My Maps lets viewers personalize maps

Google My Maps

Google today announced the creation of My Maps, a new personalization feature for Google Maps. The feature takes its influence from Web 2.0 apps by letting visitors create their own version of a map with simple editing tools: landmarks, routes, and shapes can be drawn on the chart either for public maps, such as a guided tour, or private, for helping friends with driving and walking directions. It's also possible to attach HTML, photos, and either Google or YouTube videos to give landmarks extra meaning, the search company says.

The service is live today and works with any computer that can already view Google Maps. Those running Google Earth can also import any public or private map into Google Earth for viewing outside of a web browser.
