Google has just made it easier to create your own map mashups. (A mashup is a Google map overlaid with your own personal points and data.) When you go to Google Maps, you see a new tab labeled My Maps. Select this tab and then click the Create a New Map button. When the next page appears, select a point on the map, add a placemark for that place, assign a label and descriptive text, and then click the Save button. You can return to this place at any time by opening the My Maps tab and selecting the placemark. Very easy to do, and quite useful.
