Make Google Maps Easily
It’d make my life easier since I’m often plotting a couple addresses at a time and I could do it in batch mode instead of manually typing them 1-by-1 into the normal Google maps interface.Having a unified tool would also plot the points in relation to each other with helps understand their distribution and anticipate which map database I need to use to create a custom map for publication.
UPDATE (11 Dec) - There is a Yahoo maps based solution that does just that called Batch Geocode. Check it out.
UPDATE (18 Dec) – Here’s another neat mashup creator called Power Map for Google Maps.
Every wonder how to put multiple mashups on one page? Say a detail map of a city and locator map showing where that city is in a state or country? We often do this in the newspaper, but I’ve never seen it done online with a mashup. This page does just that: http://www.hoksba.org/content/our_churches.php
