Simple Sketch Mapping Tool

I’m not sure when this came out, but I like Esri’s Sketch-a-Map tool.  Interface is manageable and reasonably intuitive, and the range of functions seems reasonable, for what this is. I’m not sure why they limited the scale to about 1:18000; one definitely wants to zoom in further.   And I wish they’d provided some display of lat/long coordinates.  And I wish I could do simple “locates” outside of the US (without using lat/longs).  But I guess we have other mapping applications for those things!   For a very basic application, this does what it says it will do.
