How to Find Us Maps
The popular map creation website Map Channels has released a new tool called Venue Maps. This new Venue Maps tool can be used to easily create a handy 'how to find us map' for your business, store or event.
To create your own venue map you just need to enter an address for your venue and Venue Maps will automatically create a Google Map of your venue with Street View. When you have created your map you then just need to cut and paste the source code for the map to have it display on your own website.
Venue maps makes use of the new Signed-in Maps feature of the Google Maps API. This means that any visitors to your venue map will be able to simply click on the 'Save to Google Maps' link and your venue will be automatically saved to the official Google Maps website and to their mobile phone Google Maps application.
