Fun with Google Maps Guestmaps

Here's a nifty little piece of Google Maps hackery...

It's a tool that lets your blog's readership pinpoint just where they are on a map. As it uses Google Maps, all they need to do is zoom in to their location, and click to add their name to an icon (and a message and a URL). If your host supports iframes or JavaScript then you can embed the whole map in a blog entry, otherwise you'll just need to put a link to your guestmap where folk can find it...

Sort of like this: My Google Guestmap (I've also put a link into my layout's sidebar).

For further demographic research you can export the resulting data into a copy of Google Earth.

I'd add myself to the map, but New Zealand's not on it.

Oh! Of course. How very remiss of me.
