Presentation on GoogleMaps

My presentation is available here , it is hosted by drop.io , a great place to pu something up on the web quickly. You do not need to create an account. The stotage is only 100MB and the maximum file size is 10MB. You should make an administrator account when you create the account. Access can be limited by password and you can set the site to erase after a week, month or year.

Video - introduction to google maps
Video - make your own map
Video - look at some examples of GoogleMaps
Video - look at a conference map and what you might put there

The videos were created with Jing - a free video capture program. You can make short video clips (under 5 minutes) and screen captures. The clips are saved on the hard disk but also can be hosted on the internet free.

Note: GoogleMap user guide
