Xm.my is a simple web tool that lets you create short map links for any location on Google Maps and easily share them online (Twitter, Facebook, Delicious… etc.)

Map URLs are long. For example, the actual Google Maps link to San Diego looks like this:

https://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=San+Diego&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=30.957823,56.513672&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=San+Diego,+California&ll=32.730108,-117.170563&spn=0.128233,0.220757&z=12

Try tweeting or texting this – not a lot of fun. An Xm.my URL of San Diego looks like this:

http://xm.my/3W6r

The application is easy to use and there is no sign up. To create a short map link, simply choose a location on a map by entering its address or dragging the marker to desired point, add a name and then click on “save map” button. That’s it!

Xm.my also allows you to add your Flickr photos to maps and provides ready made airport code maps. For example, San Francisco International becomes http://xm.my/SFO, London Heathrow is http://xm.my/LHR.
