Hi All,

I was starting a map of important things in Chennai for myself in Google Maps, but thought I would share it with all of you, so that we could collaborate and make it even better.

Right now misc (mostly shopping) is in blue and restaurants are in red.

Hope we can make this a really wonderful tool for people new to the area or who are interested in expanding their horizons.

We could also expand this make to areas near chennai like pondi...feel free to add what you wish!

Very Useful!

Now, if we could somehow overlay PLaneMad's transport routes onto this map, I'd be set!
If only I knew then what I know now..

Thanks for sharing, what a great idea.

Without going into very specific details, how do you go about either adding information to your map, or starting one of your own?

that's a really good idea. If I have a little time and patience left I will make myself some maps for my trip with all important locations marked.

@ OP - Are you using Google Mapmaker? If not, what is it?
Did you wear the other person's shoe today?
