Now use the search bar at the top to start adding locations to your map. Just start typing the name and Google will pull it up. You don’t even have to know the exact address.

Click the name in the list, or on the pin that appears on the map, and an info box will pop up. Then click Add to map.

Repeat this step for as many locations as you want to add to your map. Just search for a location.




Once you’ve added all the locations to your map, you can customize the icons to keep them even more organized and easily recognizable. Click on a location in the list on the left, then click the paint bucket icon.
