Google Static Maps Generator Widget

February 26th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

This is a quick tool we built so that you can easily generate Google static maps with routes/paths. It is currently pretty simple, but we hope to add features to this widget periodically.

  1. Use the map tool to draw your routes and paths
    • Find the location you want to start with and click on map to drop the marker
    • Find the next location and repeat
    • You can move a marker after has been dropped
    • To move great distances in the map you can enter the location and search; centering the map using the search does not drop a marker
  2. The static map URL will be automatically generated for you
  3. Click “Preview Map” to open the static map preview in a new window/tab
  4. Copy/Paste the URL to your web site, page or blog as a IMG tag SRC

There are other features in the widget so explore and have fun.
