Tolomato on the Map

Preparing for a talk I have to give on St Augustine maps, I visited the Google mapmaker site…and I got Tolomato on the map!

Google has a feature that allows people to add a site to their maps. Google map enthusiasts review the addition, authenticate it, and then add it to the Google map as one of those little orange balloon shapes.  It’s called Google Mapmaker, and it’s a lot of fun!

So I sat down and did it this week. It was surprisingly easy. The reviewer wrote with a couple of corrections, and lo and behold, here it is.  It’s accompanied by a photo taken from Google Streetview, so it has the coordinates. A screen shot of Tolomato Cemetery on the Google map:


If you want to check out Google Mapmaker yourself, this is the short URL:
