One of the things that I have been interested in doing is adding maps to my travelogues and photo albums. I had been experimenting with web-sites that generate maps for you and also allow you to mark points with longitude and latitude coordinates.
A friend said to me to me the other day back in 2006 why don't I use Google Maps. I had a look and it was really quite straightforward to do. You do need to know some java script. On the map in this example, there are 3 markers and a line indicating the journey I took from Forli to Roma and then to Bari.
To try the map out for real click here. This will take you to another section of my web-site. Click on the "markers" and see what happens.
Very nifty indeed.
