Pin in the Map.

Pin in the Map. Google Maps plus some smarts = a neat way of sending map info of a specific location via email. Mark it, attach some info, send the link. The links are permanent, you can have private and public links, and it creates Google Earth links too. It’s pretty darn cool all round, mateys.

 When you’re happy with your preview, click “save”. The system will remember what zoom level you were at, and the type of map you had selected. The site will give you a couple of links you can use to get back to your placemark. You’ve also got an opportunity to send an email to your contacts with the links included. Click the “start an email” link. This will open your mail program, with the links already added to the email. Convenient, huh?

  • Thanks for the review. You might be interested in knowing that I’ve now added ZIP code lookup for US addresses for extra convenience…

    Best regards
