This map generator takes longitude/latitude pairs as input and plots them on a Mercator projection map along with land/sea and political boundaries. The map bounds will be about 10 percent larger than the bounds of the entered data points. As an example, the generator is loaded with default values that yield a map of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, generated by supplying the longitude and latitude values ... Full description.
