How to put Google Maps on your blog

Here's how you can add Google Maps to your blog in seconds.

1) Go to and find the area you're looking for. is a Web 2.0 project to describe the whole planet Earth. It was created by Alexandre Koriakine and Evgeniy Saveliev, inspired by Google Maps and Wikipedia.

2) Once you found the area you're looking for, click on WikiMapia at the top right corner and then click on the "Map on your page" link.

3) Just copy the HTML code given and paste it on your blog. You may need to resize the frame accordingly.

For example, above you can see a map of the Changi Boardwalk.

Changi Boardwalk is made up of four segments. Sunset Walk: For a splendid view of the sunset over Changi Point, amid a backdrop of huge boulders. Kelong Walk: a stretch of the boardwalk with kelong stilts built over water, reminiscent of the 'good old kelong days'. Cliff Walk: located just below the hilltop chalets, allows a walk through lush greenery. Viewing decks along this stretch at vantage points provide panoramic views. Sailing Point Walk: near the Changi Sailing Club provides open views of the sea.

You can zoom in and out and move the map around too. Cool aye.
