Stupid-proof map creator tool

Mindy McAdams posted a link to Atlas, an easy-to-use map-making tool. HOW easy is it to use? I signed up for an account, typed in the address for the Orlando Sentinel and made this map. Total time: Less than 1-1/2 minutes.

You can embed the map just like YouTube video and manipulate it in several other ways. I’d embed it here, but Journalistopia gets indigestion whenever I try to embed stuff. Heck, it actually took me longer to write this post. Atlas, I wish I had found thee earlier. Enjoy!
