Your project for this workshop is to access our collaborative map and input a placemark on a location in which you have had a vacation or would like to vacation. We will then modify the placemark by adding the following content: text, images, video.  You will also be modifying the placemark itself.  Time permitting we will create a short walking tour of no more than one mile at our vacation location and input useful content along the route. I will also share how you can embed our collaborative map below.

Our collaborative map can be found here.
