Did you know Google Maps has several additional tools besides the basic map?  The Distance Measurement Tool allows you to pick points on a map and it will total the feet, miles, or meters between two or more points. I recently used this to see how far I was walking.

Of course this isn’t super accurate as elevation changes and doesn’t follow the road perfect, but will give you a general idea.  Alternatively, you could use Google Earth for more options.

Try it out…

  1. Visit www.google.com/maps
  2. Find your area on the map by searching or scrolling
  3. Click the My Maps link at the top
  4. Put a check in Distance Measurement Tool
  5. Start clicking away on the map

Explore other neat My Map options, like The Weather Channel (radar), GPS, Gas Prices, etc.  Pretty neat.
