Your Questions About Google Maps

Donna asks…

What’s the fastest way to compile links from Google Maps?

I have a list of addresses that I put up on my website.
I want to add links to a Google Map based on each different address.

I can paste each address into Google Maps and generate a link, but I have about 100 addresses. Is there a faster way to do this?

Administrator answers:

I think google base will provide you with a feed to upload all your locations. Just do a search for google base

Michael asks…

When I go to type stuff on google maps, my social security and personal info appears?

Okay so on google maps on my android tablet I press the search bar and then my social security and stuff I’ve kept on my gmail shows up. How do I make it so that stuff doesn’t appear?

Administrator answers:

Are you serious? Hahaha that is actually very serious !
I don’t want to scare you or anything,but it only takes 10 minutes to write an Android spyware that enters your Gmail and steals all the UN-ENCRYPTED info…such as your SSN number e.t.c.
To make that info dissapear permanently,I would IMMEDIETLY do 2 things
1) Go to your Google account from a regular computer and erase the SSN number and other info.
2)Restore the tablet to factory condition (Menu>Settings>Privacy>Restore to Factory Settings) and never again give Google your SSN.

REASONS WHY?
Because tablets are relatively new technology. Programmers haven’t been able to “play” with it for a long enough to learn its weak areas.

How do you get your pictures on google maps?

I have a great picture of a full spectrum rainbow taken near my house with the town water tower in the background. I would love to post it on google maps, but I don’t see anything on the website saying that the average joe can do that. Does anyone know who I can contact about this, or if they’d even allow it?

Paul asks…

How can I use Google Maps to plot out the summer road trip route I took?

I took a road trip this summer. I would like to use Google Maps (or some other map tool) to make a map that shows the route we took and all of the destinations we had.

Level up: Is there a way that I can associate my photos with the destinations on the map? (example: Hover over London and see thumbnail pics in my Picassa web album)

Administrator answers:

I think this link will help you.

Mandy asks…

Is it possible to integrate Google Maps street view into Google Earth?

Google Maps street view looks better and it’s easier to use. Is there any way to integrate Google Maps street view into Google Earth?

Administrator answers:

Its already integrated, on the left of Google Earth just checkmark Street view. As of Google Earth 4.3.7284.3916 (my verison) Street View is part of the program.

Carol asks…

How often are pictures of homes on Google Maps updated?

Does anyone know for certain how often pictures of people’s homes are updated on Google Maps?

Are the pictures updated everywhere the same time or does it vary by location?
Yes, I’m sorry, I mean the Street View.

Thanks Molly, your question prompted me to ask this! lol That really bugs me now. I looked up mine & mine appears to be old too, but I’m wondering just how often they are updated because that really is creepy!
And thank you to those that answer this & provide info. All is appreciated! :)

Administrator answers:

You mean the street view (Where it shows the picture of a house from the perspective of a person standing on the street)? Those were taken by cars driving by that worked for google. These will take awhile to update (I would guess every 2-4 years), as no satellite can capture that angle.

If you mean the satellite view (Bird’s eye view), that is updated every one to two years.

Both options require taking millions of millions of photos, and compiling them into one big, scrollable file.

Sharon asks…

How do I embed Google maps in my website?

I want to embed a Google maps app in my website so visitors can type in their zip code (or City & State) and find the nearest location.

Is it possible to do this for free?

Administrator answers:

Hello lanS,

from Google Maps Support Page:

Embedding a map into a website or blog
Print

You can embed a simple map, a set of driving directions, a local search, or maps created by other users. Here’s how:

1. Ensure that the map you’d like to embed appears in the current map display.
2. Click Link to this page in the top-right corner of the map.
3. In the box that pops up, copy the HTML under ‘Paste HTML to embed in website,’ and paste it into the source code of your website or blog.

If you’d like to adjust the size of the map before you embed it, just click Customize and preview embedded map, select your preferred size, and take a look at the preview map. Once you’re happy with what you see, copy the HTML that appears in the box at the bottom of the window.

Keep in mind that you won’t be able to embed Traffic maps, Mapplets, and some other Maps features.

For more detailed information on how to add a Google Map to your site, visit http://maps.google.com/help/maps/getmaps

Hope this info help you to embed your map. Take care.
