Easy Map Builder

By
Education & Training with Real Estate Technology

Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft all have come out with their little API's (Application Programming Interface) so you can create maps on your own website. However, API's middle name is "Programming", which means it can easily fly over the head of most people. Easier option? Yep, I got one for you.

Instead of writing your own map from scratch, try Map Builder. Map Builder is a free online application to get you started quickly. Everything is relatively intuitive allowing you to choose custom points and icons.

Update: There is a monthly fee-based real estate option. I haven't signed up for it, so I'm not really sure what the added benefit is. If anyone signs up for it, please fill us in! 

Other than its ease, why or how else would you use it? Here are a few ideas:

Other ideas? Post a comment. We'd love to hear them!

And for those that have seen Jim Lee's post on testimonials, take a look at Map Builder's feedback. I think their's are all real. :-)

Wish that it included my little part of the world.

Maybe it will be added in the near future

Gary, Yes, let us know what you come up with. I'm sure there are many of us that would like to see!

Ed, Any points that you want need to be added by you. Fredricksburg is on their map, but attractions, listings, etc. need to be inputted through their interface.

BTW, forgot to mention that there is a real estate version of Map Builder that has a monthly fee. I haven't signed up for it so I'm not really sure what the added benefits are.
