Mapping Software for Tourism

I love new things!  Yesterday I learned about mapping software.  You can use Google or you can use ArcGIS to create maps you share links to, or embed in your website.

I went to ArcGIS, created a free account and map a map that shows places where activities are taking place in Hampton, Iowa on Saturday December 3.  It took about 5 minutes to create.

Think of the possibilities!  Create walking tours for your historical society.  How about a shop hop for the retailers?  Or a visitors welcome walking tour.  Web designers can use it to show web visitors where they client’s location is – and what’s nearby.
