Adapt Google Maps

If you’re teaching Geography, preparing notes for a school trip, or doing anything at all that involves maps, you might find MapFab useful.  When you open this online tool, the whole world lies before you.  This app allows you to select any part of it, at whatever scale you wish, then add as many markers, labels, lines and highlights to it as you wish.  It’s very easy to use.  Once you’ve got it how you want it, you can either use the app to save a link to it online, or use the printscreen [PrtScrn] key to copy what you see and then paste it into an image editing tool for cropping to the size you want.

This map showing Loreto’s transport links was created in about 2 minutes when using MapFab for the first time:
