Create Custom google maps

I was browsing the google maps API the other day and came up on something pretty cool, google now allows you to make custom maps right on their website. Previously only the tech savvy knew how to accomplish through server side scripts such as PHP, not anymore! I played around with it a bit making a map for a website I’m working WCMP. You can draw lines, squares and circles and put markers wherever you want on the map. Google also boasts a rich editor to format the description of your marker even going as far as putting in pictures. This is a great tool for your clients website or even document a recent vacation you went one. Check it out, heres the one I made. If you make a cool map feel free to post it here so I can take a look.
