How can I submit my business to google maps when my business is a service for people in their homes?
Usually when I search for a type of business google has many names and addresses of the businesses immediately and it’s included on google maps. But if my business consists of services primarily provided in a customer’s home (and I don’t have an office yet) can it still be listed? Without an address?
There’s a new feature in Google Places for businesses that allows you to list a “service area.” When you do this you can also exclude your address.
Not showing your address seems to lead to lower rankings, so I would definitely add it if you get an office sometime down the line, but this will at least get you listed for now.
How I can set the scale in a google maps embedded in my site ?
I mean: using google maps wizard I set a map with pin points of my interest. Following rules, I embedded the map in my site, but when I see it, I can’t see in proper scale: I see my entire country or a little slice and I have to zoom in and out.
So the question.
There’s a way I can set the right scale and fix it in my embedded google map wizard created ?
Thanks in advance.
How can I collate a land map with Google Maps satellite view?
I’m considering investing in a tract of property, and the boundaries and borders of this property are displayed on the land companies website. It is shaded and graphed out well, but the over-all map leaves a lot to the imagination. It doesn’t show neighboring property or anything.
Is there any way that I can collate the shaded part of the land map I’m considering investing in, with Google Maps satellite view? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I did this once, by stitching screen captures of google maps section in a photo editing program like Photoshop. When you have the google map area displayed on screen, hold down the key ALT and press key “Print Screen”, this will copy the content of your screen into a memory buffer. In your photo editing program, make a new blank photo file then press Ctrl-V or “File -> Paste” in the menu, and your “screenshot” will be pasted into the the new file. Make sure your new blank file resolution matches your screen resolution. To stitch other screenshot into the same file, you will have to resize the resolution of your file to double the original file, or make that file at the required resolution in the first place.
For example: if you have your screen resolution at 1024×786, make your blank file at 1024×1572 if you want to stitch two screen shots vertically, and 2048×786 if you do it side by side. After that you would want to clean up the image by cropping out unwanted areas, flatting it in case of Photoshop and save it in JPEG format to save disk space.
