    • For CLASSIC My Maps: right click the 'View in Google Earth' icon under the Map Description when viewing your map
    • For (new) My Maps /Pro, or Map Engine Lite/Pro: Just copy the link from the address bar, when viewing your map (Map must be publically shared)
    • you will need to repeat individually for each map required
    • Google Maps will only display 10 Maps at once (more will be saved, but wont display)

  1. (if you tick this box might list this content somewhere in the future, otherwise the link will not be disclosed)

  2. (note at this stage minimal validation is done, so its easy to generate an invalid link!)
  3. (you shouldnt see this - its an antispam measure)

Notes: You will be given a short link that is a permanent link to your content. In addition you will be given a special secret admin url, which can be used to view rudimentary stats and/or change the destination of the link or delete it should the need arise, you should save this link somewhere safe!
