For various reasons I have to present ~100 pictures of my last trip through Europe. To make this presentation more informative, I'd like to include an animated travel map that shows the route I traveled. It should be possible to enter various destinations and then link them in arbitrary order. Additionally, I'd like to specify if I used a plane, train, ferry, bus or car.

Are there any free tools available that have these features?

TravellersPoint has a great map making feature.

Google MyMaps or Google Earth could also be good tools for creating a map. Google Earth in particular now supports "Tours" that you can record to show an animated path, even with narration and photos.


I used Tripline to show where I've been on recent trips. Again it's point A to B, but at least you can easily share it on Facebook or a Blog. For example, my 2010 South American journey map is embedded on my blog.

They are in beta and seem to be adding new features fairly recently. I'd love them to add the ability to show two people travelling at once - like if you were racing someone across Europe, showing where you each were at diff times on the same map would look awesome.

  • Thanks. That has everything I need expect for the ability to choose between plane, cars, ferries, etc. Apr 12, 2012 at 6:29
  • Nice, but still allows for Gowalla and not for Flickr. Odd.

I'm using globtrottr.com that is a nice little website that allows to create journeys using different transport types, display them on a map and calculate stats.
