Create and Share a Google Map in Seconds
Sketchmap.co.uk, from mapping technology company FIND, is a new Google Maps based application that allows users to draw on a map and easily share the results with friends. It is a great tool for quickly sketching out a location or a route that you wish to show to other people.
Simon Lewis, Managing Director of FIND, says, "The key feature of sketchmap is that it's designed to be very quick and easy to use - so there’s no logging-in. From arranging a meeting place to sharing your favourite picnic location, it's incredibly simple to use - just sketch a map and share it in seconds."
As well as the handy drawing tools the map includes a number of layers, including administrative boundaries, listed buildings, scenic interests and geology.
