Steps for the creation of your own walking tour:

  1. Get a Gmail account (at gmail.com).
  2. Go to Google maps and click on “My Maps.”
  3. Click “Create New Map.”
  4. Fill in the title and description boxes.
  5. These steps will vary for you, but this is how we made our small walking tour of NYU. First, find New York University on your map.
  6. Click on the blue marker and drag it to your first location (on the demo map, this is Bobst), and fill in the title and description boxes.
  7. Click the blue marker again, and drag it you your second location (on the demon map, this is Dosa Man). (Again, fill in the descriptive boxes).
  8. Click the blue marker again, and drag it you your third location (Warren Weaver Hall on demo). (Again, fill in the descriptive boxes).
  9. Click the blue marker again, and drag it you your fourth location (Steinhardt Building on demo). (Again, fill in the descriptive boxes).
  10. Click the blue marker again, and drag it you your fifth location (Washington Square Park on demo). (Again, fill in the descriptive boxes).
  11. Etc, etc.
  12. Click on the line icon.
  13. Click on your starting position, and trace your steps by clicking on the map at any point you wish to turn.
  14. Click “Saved” when you want to save and “Done” when you are done!

  1. am I missing something? where’s your map?

  2. Sava- I think that temporarily the embedding isn’t working. It was working before and you can see it in the bottom of the post if you go into edit mode. The embedding also isn’t working for the other videos at the moment I’m writing.
