In Friday's post, I noted how I was excited about Google Map's new visual user interface which allows an individual to create map mash-ups without the need to know programming code or scripts. As promised here is a short tutorial (six minutes) which demonstrates how easy it is to create a Google Maps mash-up.
If you're not familiar with the concept of a mash-up, this word is used to explain the process of linking different kinds of web data ... in this case maps and other web based information ... to provide increased value for your customer.
