Quikmap


Make your own Google Maps quikly!

I'm very impressed by the Quikmaps site. Setting up an account is free and the maps take seconds to produce. Video and images are embedded using standard HTML tags in the marker window. Hint - make sure that you are creating a map while logged in as a member, and ensure that the cursor isn't visible in the window before attempting to save your map.
Thanks to Tom Barrett for pointing out that it's possible to link to images and photos in this way. The user-friendly nature of the site makes it ideal for students to create maps of their local or personal geographies and fieldwork activities. Quikmaps seems an ideal replacement for the shortlived GMap site and hopefully will be around for a lot longer!
Here's a demonstration of the features:
