Google Maps

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.
