Free maps you can make (fast)

The nice folks at Faneuil Media have just updated Atlas, the free online map-making tool. Now you can:

  • Create a high-quality online map in a few seconds
  • Embed a map on your Web page in any size or format
  • Allow readers to plot comments and photos on maps (can you believe this? Is this amazing?)
  • Download your data in Keyhole Markup Language
  • Add Wikipedia content to major cities

Now you have NO EXCUSES for having so few maps on your Web site!

Update (Jan. 18): Here is a very cool example of one of these maps with contributions from the community — the Cincinnati Enquirer asks readers to map local bars, restaurants and bowling alleys that are not complying with the state’s new smoking ban.
