How do I make an interactive map?
I am working on creating a blog for my upcoming rtw trip and am not super tech savvy. On it, I want to create an interactive map that shows where we are, where we have been, where we are going, etc.
Does anyone know of a good website to do this through or have any tips on how to make a map like this work?
If you are setting up your own domain with wordpress for example, then it becomes way more complicated. There are a few wordpress plugins for google maps, but they are not as flexible and as easy to use.
Here is also a youtube link to learn how to create an interactive map....it is pretty cool. Our family leaves in January 2012 for a trip and have made a tripline.

For instance, if you want to put your entire itinerary in before you leave, you can, then just click on the embed button at the top and it will give you a code to put in your blog. Super easy. You can also share via social media like FB and Twitter.
If you want to update as you go along, you can make one map when you get to your first destination (for instance, New York to London)
Then when you move on, say you go overland to Rome, then fly to Mumbai, you just go back and create a new route. Here's what it would look like:
You can even click on the bus icon below the city to signify any overland journeys. Hope this helps!
