ScreenshotGoogle Maps offers a full API, but it’s not always the easiest thing in the world to use. If you only need to build and maintain a few maps, take a look at Click2Map instead. This service lets you build a Google Map using their own visual editor, where you place markers just by clicking and use a popup window to set things like title and URL for the markers. When you’re done, you can publish your map to the web, which gives you a URL on the Click2Map servers that you can share with anyone.

The basic service, which includes an unlimited number of maps and markers, is free. Paid plans, starting at $9/month, add additional features including widget publishing, reports, import and export tools, and a way to hook up a custom database to drive map creation.

  1. maps.google.com has a feature that lets you create your own map using a WYSIWYG visual editor. Click on the My Maps tab and click “Create a map” to see it. Or check out the Youtube video at http://youtube.com/watch?v=KPOOWvP_dd8

  2. Seems kind of redundant considering Google offers some of the click2map services for free!

  3. I’ve tested Click2Map and there is a lot of difference betweeb Google MyMaps and Click2Map. The features are a lot more professional, like the import and templates. Plus you get some statistics on how your visitors use your maps.
    I think if you want to create a simple map you can use My Maps but when you need to be more productive or if you manage lots of information Click2Map is simply better.
