[I just received this from an artists listserv that I’m on in the Baltimore area. A great tool!]
Does everyone know about this?
Go to this URL, http://gmap-pedometer.com/
click on Click on “manually” (Straight lines). Start at your house
and double click at each point along route. Don’t use the automatical
for cyclists mode.
Then you can save the map. You’ll get the hang of it quickly.
to find out distance of any route, somewhere else, you just go to
http://gmap-pedometer.com/ URL, and type the starting address into
the space at the top and then adjust how close you want to see the
map. It’s sooooo fun!
