The Best Locations for Alfresco Sex
Map Channels is a Google Maps creation tool that allows anyone to easily create their own Google Map. It is a great way for non-programmers or those who don't want to mess about with the Google Maps API to create a map.
Map Channels lets you embed a custom map into your website or blog without the need for coding. The service is also free and can be used to create maps for personal use or to embed on a commercial website. It is therefore a great way to enhance a website with a map that provides useful information for a target audience.
A good example of this is the Truck Stops Map created by Commercial Motor. The map lists truck-stops, lorry parks and other overnight HGV parking areas in the UK. It is a map that might have limited appeal to the general public but provides a useful service to the truck driving readers of Commercial Motor.
Another interesting example is a map created by the French magazine website Rue69. In a risqué article about the best locations for outdoor sex in France, Rue69 asked their readers for their input on their favourite romantic outdoor locations. They then used Map Channels to create a map of the locations to complement the article.
The map lists the pros and cons of each location and the contributors also rate their personal 'experience' of the location.
