Lansing Online News will use the tool to highlight locations where we do major stories. Click on the link to the larger map and then click on the icon for Preuss Pets icon as an example. As you will see, the Googlemaps tool allows us to embed our YouTube videos directly into the map locations.
Over time, as we add more locations to the map, you will be able to browse through stories of interest.
