My Google map of Paris

Hi

My wife and I went to Paris in April and we had a great time there as you can see on my trip report http://gardkarlsen.com/Paris_France.htm . I have now made a Paris Google map that shows where the different attractions are located and I have posted this on http://gardkarlsen.com/paris_france_map.htm . Please note that most of the markers on the map leads back to the trip report that I have made. My goal was to make it easier for first time visitors to understand where the different attractions are located.

Get in touch if you have any comments

Regards
Gard

Thank you Gard, this is fantastic. I'll also be printing out your trip report (read it a few months ago) before I go to Paris this January.
Kind regards
Amanda

Gard, this is wonderful! Right up there with tracking the fugitives from Prison Break on Google Earth.

Now that I've had fun with your map I look forward to reading your whole report. Thanks for sharing!

I love it, well done Gard. I never know where all the nice sites are, it is easier to remember with your map, thank you!
If you want to know how many visitors per day you get and where they're from (you see points on a world map), go and see what google offers you with "google analytics". I'm addicted to it!

Great idea! Are you one of the reasons Norway is one of the best places in the world to live? <GRIN>

Hi

Thanks for the google analytics tip. I do have other analytic tools but I have registered to see what it looks like

Hi

I have made a little change to the map to make it better. I have introduced tooltips so when you move the cursor over the markers you will now get a short text informing you what the marker is all about. Check it out on http://gardkarlsen.com/paris_france_map.htm
