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.
