Creating Your Own Community Google Map

Clicking any of the graphics will make them larger and easier to view

1. Open Google Maps and choose My Maps

2 Fill In the name of your map and some detail and also click the privacy settings so your map will not be found in Google Searches

Now enter an address or Town, City, State Country for your first entry as you can see a small downward green arrow shows that location.

Next there is a little blue balloon which is the placement tool click that once

Next fill In the Information the one below was done using rich text which allows you to add links or pictures and words

Save when finished and click done
