Google Maps: Change order of locations in My Maps

Reblogger Nick Bastian

I happen to think Google maps are a lot of fun and can be a great tool. Cheryl obviously knows a thing, or two about google maps and has posted some great tips in the Google maps group. Take a look!

Original content by Cheryl Johnson

As you add locations to create a map in Google Maps - My Maps, the locations will appear in a list in the left column.  They will appear in the order in which you added them.

You can change the order by dragging and dropping each location.

Click My Maps, click Edit.

Hover the cursor over location marker icon to the left of the location address in the left column.  Be forewarned:  It can be pretty finicky.  But just keep gently moving the cursor around until the 4-pointed-move-arrow appears. 

As soon as you see the 4-pointed-move-arrow, you can "grab" on to the item and drag it upward or downward in the list.

When finished click Save - Done.

    I love my Google Maps!  Recently I created one with all the natural grocery store locations on it.  Sounds odd, but I've had so many relos wanting to live within a few minutes to Whole Foods, etc.  So rather than guess, I developed the map. 

    Now it's saved to my Ipad so I don't have to stubble for an answer!
