Help me make my own travel maps
February 8, 2010 4:52 AM Subscribe
I'd like to make a map that includes my favorite restaurants (for example) on a city map and be able to print and carry it with me. What tools can I use for this? Is there software that makes this easy? Google maps doesn't seem to do what I want - or I don't know how to use it. Help?

I'd like to be able to type in my addresses, have them appear on a map and have a legend I can carry around too. Simple, right?
I've tried to use Google maps, but it maps everything using the same icon. So, when I print it out I can't actually see whats where.
I've tried varying the icons a bit but this seems tedious to do for each location. What I really want is numbered or alphabetized placemarks, so that I can see for example that restaurant G or 7 on the map corresponds to the one on my list.
