Wayfaring.com – Build and share Google Maps
Wayfaringis a great new Google Maps application that allows you to build yourown Google Map without having code up a map using the Google Maps API.All you need to do is register for an account and begin building yourown personal Google Map to share with others. „Waypoints“ are added toyour map as pins that contain information that you enter about thatspecific location. It also combines route mapping so you can present atour of a city, an exercise route or directions to your house, as a fewexamples. Wayfaring also employs popular social networking conceptssuch as wiki style editing of group maps and tagging. The interface is pretty slick and it’s very easy to get up and running. Give it a try!
