Hi Arleen. Thank you for responding. Have you used it before? I took a look and it appears that the properties have to be in mls. I deal with a lot of commercial properties that aren't listed in the mls so that has been my issue with finding a source that can plot my addresses with different colored numerical icons. I have been using Community Walk but I had to upload the icons and they look pretty rough when printed out.

Thanks RJ. Google Maps didn't work for me, I'll give MapBuilder a try next time. Oops correction to my last post, the name of the website that I used to create the map I wanted was communitywalk.

I caught this question a little late but I wanted to let you know about two more that I use all the time, depending on what I want to do with the map.

First off, you can create your own custom Google Maps, you will need a free Google account for this. you can create plaemarks, colored lines, colored shapes, and what ever icons you want to use. The only downside I see to this was that you can not host the map yourselft, you can link to it or embed Google's code into a frame on your website.

Secon, take a look at MapBuilder.net. I have used this service for more advanced maps, and it also lets you store pretty much all the map coding on your own website. They have a built-in geocoding tool that lets you type in an address and they will plot the property on the map for you using it's lat/lon. More Info: http://www.mapbuilder.net/index.php

MLS wouldn't work because the properties I wanted to plot aren't listed in MLS and I also wanted to upload business logos as icons. I was able to use City Walk. Check it out, it is pretty neat.

The company I work for has a few different solutions for this. In many cases depending on your MLS the properties are plotted automatically. Additionally some solutions are included in the MLS themselves. Map searching and browsing is becoming more and more popular, it shouldn't be too hard to find an unlimited method of plotting your listings.

Jessica,

mapquest.com You can put in up to ten addresses on mapquest.com. It's very nice, once you've entered the addresses, if you don't like the order they're in, you can move the address up or down and put them in driving order.
