Map Channels: create maps, earn money

Map Channels Is a very interesting service, which I have learned thanks to Blographs, Its functionality is very robust and practical:

1. Works as a wizard

Quite practical, once you register you only need to go step by step choosing where you have your kml or georss file stored, you can also use a map saved as mymaps from google. The rest is selecting the bar style, display options, and more.

  • Multiple layers can be combined
  • You can add filters by selection
  • You can customize icons or tags
  • You can add features like wikimapia, local search and others
  • Support Georss

2. You can host local or remote services

If you want to work seriously, you can store the scripts locally in the blog space; For this only a Google key API key is required.

3. Enable your AdSense key

For those who want to earn a little money for the releases behind the 256 kbps, it has the functionality of adding your AdSense key, so the ads shown can monetize your maps.

It takes a bit of trial and error, because some of its functionality is a bit taken from the hair, but apparently worth the effort rather than fight with the googlemaps API.
