Collaborative Mapping with Ethermap

Ethermap is a very easy to use tool for creating and sharing simple interactive maps. You could use Ethermap to map your favourite coffee shops, bars & restaurants. You could it use it to show friends where and when you want to meet. You could even use it to map out places that you want to visit on your next vacation.

Creating a map with Ethermap is simplicity itself. Just drop a marker on any location you want to map and use the text editor to add any information that you want to be associated with that location. The text editor allows you to use simple html to format text and create hypertext links. You can also change the color of each marker added to the map and select from two different map styles.

When you have finished creating your map you can share it with your friends by simply cutting and pasting the map's URL. Anyone who accesses the map will have editing privileges so they can also add markers to the map. If you don't want everyone to have editing privileges then you can set a password so that only people with the password can edit the map. You can also add a password so that no one without the password can view the map.

Ethermap is free to use and your maps will not include adverts (and according to Ethermaps it never will).
