Quick Guide to Google Maps 

Here you will find some basic guidance and links to resources on how to use Google Maps for teaching, training, learning and development.

Google Maps is a key productivity tool that allows them to plan a journey,  then navigate the route, and in doing so learn more about the environment around them.

One of the interesting things you can do with Google Maps is to create a custom map with the places that matter to you, then allow friends to see and edit your maps, or publish them to the whole world. For example to the right is a map showing the golfing resorts in Mallorca. Each point is a clickable link to the resort itself.
