Know your calories burned while walking with Google maps

15 09 2007

I recently stumbled upon a web site called Gmaps Pedometer. This mash-up tool tells you:

  • The total distance of your walk.
  • How many calories you burned.

You can use the metric system or the english system.

All you have to do is:

  • Type where you want to start in the “Jump to” search box.
  • Use the usual controls to zoom the exact place where you want to start.
  • When you are ready click on the “Start recording” button and then double click on the start point.
  • Anytime you click on another point it’ll give you the distance walked and the calories burned (aproximately).

Well, what are you waiting for? Start walking! 😉

There’s something wrong with your site 🙁

I was browsing your website and noticed you have a broken link. 🙁You can find it on and it’s the “Food And Nutrition Information Center” link.

As an avid reader of “Metablogism”, I love reading anything you write about, such as “Know your calories burned while walking with Google maps”, and anything you link out to. Sadly, I couldn’t find the article you were trying to link to, but I did happen to find another good webpage on relevant topic: You should check it out, and if you like it, you probably want to switch the links.
I know you are busy and probably get millions of emails a day, but I hope this one was helpful. I just wanted to help you out for once as “Metablogism” has changed my life.
