The KLM Must See Map lets you create a map of most major cities in the world, along with the key places you want to see in them. No registration is required. If you want, you can invite others to make suggestions, too. Once you add sites to your map, you’re also provided with a link to go to where you can find out more about information about it.
It’s very easy to use. It does have two drawbacks, though, that preclude me from adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Plan Virtual Trips list.
One is that it’s business-sponsored promotion, which means it probably won’t be around for the long-term. The other sites on that list are tools that are much more likely to be around for at least the next school year.
Secondly, it looks like you’ve got to have some knowledge about the city you’re going to “visit” in order to make the map. Once you type in the name, it will automatically find it, but the other sites on that “The Best” list are more designed to introduce you to spots in the city that you then check-off to place on your maps.
It’s still a nice little tool to check-out, though.
Thanks to Google Maps Mania for the tip.
