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!

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