Seasons Greetings from FIND Maps

We thought we would take the opportunity to celebrate the festive season by producing a Christmas tree using just the tools available on our free mapping site -

The above example uses a unique map background created with the 'Your Google Map' feature. Usually the Google Map comes in its classic map legend, making the different map features like roads and parks easily recognisable. By changing some of the colours, the map background can be made to look more Christmas themed. In this case using a combination of green and white.

The tree was drawn by adding different coloured map pin symbols to represent baubles, as well as a star for the top. The tree base was drawn using the line tool with a bright red colour applied

To try your own hand at annotating a map just go to and click on the drawing tools to get started.
