Need a map editor that will let me overlay aerial photographs and more?

Hi there, I am interested in balloon mapping an area of London. I want to host the resulting map online but I also want to contextualise it by placing it on top of for instance, a Google satellite map like this. I also want to be able to annotate it with text and photographs taken from the ground. Are there any programmes or online editors that will let me do this? Thanks.

You likely want to begin with MapKnitter, which will help you orient and correct your images, which can then be exported to a variety of formats, including Google Maps, Google Earth and more. Good luck, and please share your results!

Cheers! Forgot to add that I also want to be able to host it online once I'm done.

Google Maps Engine (the replacement for GMap's My Maps feature) has the ability to create different layers. GME is (for a free product) a fairly powerful tool.
