Recently I have re-discovered google maps. One amazing function I wasn’t aware of was to plot various points and create your own map in “My Maps”.
One of the first things that came to mind was plotting out my trip to the market. If I have various things to do around the city I can go onto google maps, plot then out, measure the distance of my bike route and even discover new businesses that are along the way.
Once you have all your favorite spots plotted out you’ll never have get a home and think, why didn’t I think to stop off there? Not only that but if you drive a car, you can discover ways to reduce your distance traveled. Even use this tool to plot out your company’s supply chain. I have used it to plot Softchoice’s distribution partners in order to better understand which are closest to our customers.
