Google Treasure Map

Treasure hunt ideas - Google MapsUse Google Maps to mark the location of the next clue. Good locations include garden sheds, greenhouses, dustbin stores, flower beds or a corner of the garden. Steps to set up this clue:

  1. Visit http://maps.google.co.uk
  2. Search for your house (or where ever you are setting up the treasure hunt)
  3. Turn on satellite layers
  4. Right-click on the location of the next clue and select "What's here?" (see image, point 1); this places a green marker on the map.
  5. Click on the share button to bring up a link (see image, point 2) - this link is the clue!


Hunters will be able to use a computer or smart phone to visit the link and see where the next clue is hidden. For example, this link shows that the next clue is hidden at the top of the slide in my old park. https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=52.528244,-1.229597&num=1&t=h&z=19
