Default Google Maps: Magic for Railfans

So Google maps has a new feature which allows you to create your own "personalized" maps using your Google account. You can then share these maps. What makes this really amazing is that you can link to pictures on each point you make, so it's perfect for documenting trips or just showing off your local work.

To give you an idea how this works I made a map using work from Mike Bjork and myself of stuff we've shot in the greater Seattle area. Click on the blue dots to see a shot from that area.

This would be a really awesome tool for trips, if you could see a map from someone who is familiar with the area beforehand it would certainly make finding decent locations for shots easier.
