EarthNC is excited to announce our TakItWithMe Embedded Google Earth map creation tool. Our new tool allows anyone with a website or blog to quickly create their own embedded maps using the new Google Earth Browser Plugin announced this morning. While currently limited to Windows support, a Mac/Linux version is in the works. For an example an embedded map, we’ve added one to our recent Florida Boating Ramps Map page.

Create Your Own Custom Map in a Simple Steps

Browse to the TakItWithMe.com Google Earth Embedded Map Tool

  1. Paste in a Google Earth KML link or Google Maps MyMap link if you’d like to include an overlay
  2. Click on the ‘Load Preview’ button. If you did not provide a KML link, you will get a warning before you continue
  3. Use the Map Navigation Controls or your mouse to set the Google Earth viewpoint you’d like to be the default for your map
  4. Click on the ‘Set Center and Zoom’ Button
  5. Click on the ‘Generate Embed Code’
  6. Copy the resulting code and paste it into your webpage or blog where’d you’d like the map to appear
  7. To create another map, simply refresh the page and start again

Caveats

Given the short lifetime of the Google Earth Plugin (announced at 9am PDT this morning) and the TakItWithMe Beta (completed roughly 4 hours later), there are a few features that remain to be built.

  • The Google Earth plugin is currently only supported on Windows in IE and FireFox. Google has stated they are working on the Mac/Linux versions
  • The TakItWithMe embedded map is set to a roughly 500 pixel by 500 pixel size which is compatible with most blog formats. We will be adding an ability to customize the size of the map in the future.
