Scribble Maps - Create Personalized Maps

Posted by Siddharth Agarwal on Friday, January 29, 2010


Advances in technology has helped us in a variety of ways including improved communication. The development of satellites has given us not only higher data transfer rates but also higher volume data transmission capabilities. Apart from communication, satellites have also helped us map the entire planet. One useful form of these maps is available to public through online services such as Google Maps and Bing Maps.

Though immensely popular, online maps are not very user friendly in terms of allowing customization. One cannot change the labels or add comments to these maps. What would you do if you wanted to plan a trip on a map and share it with you friends? The current setup impairs sharing of maps through Web 2.0 channels.

Scribble Maps is a service that lets you customize and share maps. You can draw shapes and label places on a copy of Google Maps using an extensive choice of drawing tools, hence, allowing you to plan a trip on the map which can either be saved as JPG/KML/GPX or shared with friends. It is very easy to use and does not even require a signup.

The maps created can also be exported to Google My Maps easily. In addition, it allows you to create custom widgets using your maps.
