Google's "My Maps"

I noticed Google's new maps feature at around the same time I was figuring out Orbitz's suggested flight itineraries, as mentioned in my last post. I thought it might be fun to play around with it and plot the flight paths on a map.

The application is very simple and easy to use. I was able to throw this map together in under twenty minutes. And yes, I know you techie guys could probably do it a lot faster.

Anyhow, here it is.

I have one complaint, so far. A running list of the placemarks, lines, shapes, etc. that you have made is created along the left side of the screen as you go along. If you were just trying to tag a lot of random landmarks, this would be fine.

For my purposes, however, I would prefer to have an ordered list so you could see the flights in order. Or, let's say I wanted to list the cities alphabetically. I don't see any way to change the order of the items in the list, short of creating the map in the exact order I'll want the items in that list to appear. This, of course, would be extremely annoying.

Anyone else have any good ideas for using My Maps?
