Create a 'How to Find Us' Map
Local Maps is a new, free map creation tool from Map Channels that allows anyone to create a quick map containing a single marker. The tool is perfect for businesses and organizations that need a map for their 'where we are' or 'how to find us' pages.
Local Maps couldn't be simpler to use. All you need to do is enter the location of your business and grab the code to add the map to your website. Users can however customize the size of the map, the font and font size used in the map sidebar and select from a wide range of other features.
The tool allows users to add the option of displaying the Street View of their business or organization, to provide directions for visitors to the business and to view surrounding points of interest (via Google Places). The tool even includes the option to use your own image for the map marker, which means you can use your own logo to show the location of your business on your created map.
