Have you ever tried finding your way through a map? The main problem with that is finding the exact route to take in order to reach your destination. The best way to explain the directions to some place is to show a map that has the route already outlined. This is exactly what Directions Map offers.

Directions Map is a free web service that lets you create a map with a directions route outlined on it. It creates your map by letting you enter the start and destination addresses, along with a number of other options. You can also select your own measurement units: imperial or metric.

Not only is the map given a route, but you can also view the Google Street View animation where available.

The best part about the maps is that they are embeddable. You can create a map of your business or workplace and then easily display it on your own blog or website.

    It's absolutely marvellous that the illustrated route is twice as long as necessary!

    Now that's what I'm talking about. Why this isn't a built-in Google feature, I have no idea.
