Today we're excited to launch Google Maps Engine Lite (Beta): http://mapsengine.google.com/map
Maps Engine Lite is a simple, powerful tool for mapping enthusiasts to create custom maps. Whether you’d like to post a map of your favorite hikes or need to quickly crowdsource the latest forest fire updates, Maps Engine Lite lets you:
• import data from a spreadsheet, or simply draw and add points of interest, lines and shapes
• style the points and shapes on your map, and choose from nine base map styles
• share your map with colleagues and embed it on your website
The map below was created by the +MAPA Project
, and features the locations of Shark Spotters along the False Bay coastline in South Africa, as well as reported white shark sightings.
