Map Channels v4 Released

Map Channels v4

Google Maps Mania Keir Clarke created this London Video Map in about two minutes from a Google My Map. Essentially all I needed to do was post in the URL of my Google My Map to create a finished map.

Despite the ease of use of Map Channels there are also a large number of options available. You can define the initial map view, use your own marker images, add traffi
c and Panoramio layers, set the map language and adjust a number of other map settings.

Once a map is created you get a URL for your map or you can embed the map in your own website or blog.

Also available is Map Channel Events
