StepMap lets you create distinctive personalized maps that you can save as an image, or embed on a web page. A step-by-step wizard walks you through the process.
Step 1: Choose a preset region and map style, modify the style as you wish, or upload your own map:
Step 2: Add points/icons, and connecting lines between points if you want. Click on the map to add a point; you don’t need to be exact in the positioning, as StepMap lets you automatically georeference the location based on its name.
Step 3: You can optionally upload media files (picture, video, audio, documents) and link them to locations, or just link web addresses to them:
Step 4: Give the map a title//description/tags, then save it ( you have to add all three, even if you don’t want to):
Once saved, you can print out the map right away, save it as an image, link to a map page, or embed it on your website using provided HTML code:

One advantage of embedding the map code rather than just the image is that if you later modify the map, the changes will automatically be reflected in the embedded map.
