Google MyMaps, create your own maps

With Google’s MyMaps everyone can easily create and share their own maps, custom maps with the places that matter to you. MyMaps allow you to draw, add points or draw shapes anywhere, search and find places and save them to your map. Import and instantly make maps from spreadsheets or other data. Personalize maps with your own style with icons and colours, add photos and videos to any place. Share maps and collaborate on them. Allow friends to see and edit your maps, or publish them to the whole world. Maps can be embedded in your website, online learning materials or blog. You can work together on building maps, just like with Google Docs. Maps can be organised alongside your other documents in Google Drive and be taken anywhere, viewed in the Google Maps mobile app so you can find places on-the-go or organise tours, visits in towns or anywhere where Google Maps exist.

Google MyMaps, maak je eigen landkaarten

Met Google's MyMaps kan iedereen eenvoudig zijn eigen aangepaste kaarten maken en delen, kaarten met de plaatsen die belangrijk voor u zijn. Met MyMaps kan je tekenen, punten toevoegen of vormen tekenen, plaatsen zoeken en vinden en ze op je kaart opslaan. Importeer en maak direct kaarten aan de hand van spreadsheets of andere gegevens. Personaliseer kaarten met jouw eigen stijl met pictogrammen en kleuren, voeg foto's en video's toe aan elke plek. Deel kaarten en werk samen aan nieuwe of betsaande kaarten. Sta vrienden toe om je kaarten te bekijken en te bewerken, of ze te publiceren naar de hele wereld. Kaarten kunnen worden ingesloten in uw website, in je online leermateriaal of op je blog. U kunt samenwerken aan het maken van kaarten, net zoals met Google Docs. Kaarten kunnen naast uw andere documenten in Google Drive worden georganiseerd en overal mee naartoe worden genomen, bekeken met de mobiele app van Google Maps, zodat u onderweg plaatsen kunt vinden of om het even waar rondleidingen kunt organiseren, bezoeken in steden of overal waar je Google Maps terugvindt.
