Collaborative Google Maps

Map Channels Team Maps

Map Channels Team Maps provides an easy way for groups to create collaborative maps and for websites and blogs to create maps which can be embedded and which can be edited by site visitors.

Team Maps come with a number of features:
  • It is possible to add YouTube videos, photos, website thumbnails and RSS feeds to the maps
  • You can define the set of icons for the map markers
  • Select which users can be an admin or editor for your map
  • Review user edits before applying any changes to your map
  • Lock the map to disable map editing by users
  • Automatically generate KML, GeoRSS and Tab-delimited text feeds for your map data
  • Import data from KML files (e.g. Google My Maps) or tab-delimited text (Spreadsheet) files
  • Embed your Team Map into a web page using a single line of HTML code
Team Maps is a great way for groups to easily create a Google Maps mashup that will allow group members to add information to the map.
