- Time polygons – you set a time and speed, and DRAWaMAP draws a polygon encompassing the walking distance around that point based on Google Maps data.
- Map Density Quadtree – ? Not sure, but it seems to create an editable polygon feature based around a starting and ending point.
- Adjustable fill color / feature opacity.
Data import/export/editing features are very limited compared to quikmaps and ScribbleMaps, but unlike those two, DRAWaMAP lets you import or export data directly from/to Google Maps MyMaps. The symbology/iconology used in DRAWaMAP is substantially different than that used in MyMaps, which takes some getting used to; controls are a bit cryptic as well:
There’s a help button that brings up short, helpful video tutorials for some of these, but others will require experimentation to figure out. But to view these help videos, make sure you enable allow pop-ups from the DRAWaMAP site; otherwise you may wind up wasting time by pushing the help control buttons multiple times to no effect before figuring it out (like I did :). As the videos demonstrate, this AJAX app’s interface is designed to make it usable on a mobile phone, making it a decent alternative to the main Google Maps MyMaps web-based editor on those devices.
