Ever wanted to geocode or georeference (or place on a map) a batch of points on Google maps but never got the nerve to do it via My Maps? Mapalist and Google forms can do the trick for you in a jiffy.
Ever sit around playing with a particular web tool and say, “This is great, but there’s got to be a way to…(insert your idea here).” This particular question has been rolling around in my head regarding Google Maps. I LOVE Google Maps, but have been frustrated that I haven’t found an easy way to create maps collaboratively. I know I can share Google Docs and have multiple people working on the same document, presentation, or spreadsheet, so why can’t I do the same with maps? I was ready to write a blog post today pleading with Google to add a SHARE button to Google Maps when I was reminded of a tool that Andy Losik shared with me last spring.
