    Google maps define service area location?

    Hi Guys,

    I've seen sites that have a Google Map image and a section/area defined within the map as a service area, or some other geo marked section.

    I've looked and seem to come up empty.

    Can someone show me the way to define a point by point area and/or pick a point and have a, say, 5 mile radius defined?

    I've noticed Google Maps has a My Maps feature where I can do something like this but it seems clunky and I can't imagine that's the best way to achieve what I'm going for.

    The end result, of course, is to list this on my website for my visitors.

    Thanks!

    -Josh

    Hey Force,

    Yea, that's the option I saw too. But it looks like there's gotta be an easier way perhaps?

    I'll keep looking.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure what you mean by easier. Looks pretty easy to me.

    I recorded myself making one:

    Here's the link to it:

    You can also use the embed code instead of just linking to it.

    Thanks for making that Force, and for making it so easy to follow.

    Will use that approach.
