Explore Popular Google Maps

Google's personalized maps are a great way to share details about your trips or to place geographical information in its context. Unfortunately, it's not very easy to find them as the custom maps are buried at the bottom of Google's local search results.

This mapplet lets you see popular maps created by other users as you navigate in Google Maps. You may find details about interesting places, pictures and videos, art guides, tips and tricks from tourists. Don't forget to enable "Browse Popular Maps" in the left sidebar.

Other interesting overlays include photos from Panoramio and Picasa Web Albums (added by default), videos from YouTube and Wikipedia articles.
