Making a custom map

Postby gardengirl » Dec 17th, 2020, 9:01 pm

Hey Techie folks.
Does anyone out there know how to make a custom map?
What I would like to do is create a map with "pushpins" so to speak.
I have a group of friends from all over the province and I would like to create a map, pinpointing where everyone lives.
Any ideas?

I suspect if you login to google maps or google earth they more then likely would have exactly what you are looking for.

There are websites to help with making your own.
