Click on the triangle in the centre or the bottom left hand corner of the picture above, to watch a short video showing what you can do with Google Maps.
While you can use Google Maps without having a Google account, if you want to save maps, edit them and collaborate with others you will need to 'sign in' using some Google account details.
By now you may already have an account with Google if you have signed up to any of the other Google tools we have presented in this briefcase.
Either way the way to sign in is to visit http://maps.google.co.uk and click on 'sign in' at the top right of the page if you are not signed in already.
Next, familiarize yourself with the basic features which are explained on the Google Maps site: http://maps.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=68259 .
In particular, learn about the capabilities of Google maps.
Explore the most important feature of Google maps. As far as your project is concerned the most important capability is probably 'My Maps' and, in particular:
- adding you own content, such as 'push-pins', marked out areas and associated text
- saving this map
- haring and collaborating on your map
A description of how to use 'My Maps' can be found at http://maps.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=68480.
Once you have managed to create a map, try collaborating on it with others.
