QuikMaps Adds Functionality To Gmaps!!

Great news for GMaps fans!! You can now use a simple plugin to doodle on Google maps and share your doodles with friends with a single click!!

When Google launched the MyMaps feature last year, many people criticized the fact that you couldn't actually customise maps. For ex. to show someone in school the way to your home, or the way to that uber-cool club from your workplace. While google has done a great job adding a directory of special layers, the tools for creating your own maps have not seen that same advancement.

To answer that call Quikmaps, a third party tool that plugs into the Google Maps data, is a far simpler solution letting you simply doodle on the map. I doubted the power of this tool but once i started using it, I simply fell in love with it!! In most cases this plugin is a breeze to use and is much more understandable than Google's straight line tool The best part is that the results will scale when you zoom in and out. However you cannot measure the distance between two points using this plugin.

Map creations can be embedded, which you can see below, and can be shared via email or with a simple URL.



Go ahead....try it and I'm sure you'll never stop!!
