Gmap Pedometer mapping tool

Posted by on July 13th, 2005 at 12:55 pm

Just came across this nifty new mapping tool. It’s an extension of Google Maps and I think it’s a great way to share bike routes.

You can “record” your custom route and it will tell you the mileage. The best part is that you can have it generate a permalink so you can then share the route with your friends.

As an example, here’s the route from my house to the Jamison fountain.

Have fun mapping your favorite routes!

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael

    Another good site example for Google Maps (to calculate how far) is GPSies.com.
