Gmaps 101 - An Introduction to Google Maps & The Google Maps API (Part 1)

Good Morning!! It's going to be a busy one. I've got a staff meeting, our monthly GIS User Committee, and a meeting about a partnership with another agency. The last one concerns us trying to use one central geodatabase for both us and another local entity. It sure would make our life easier if we could both share and edit the same data. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

I've got a special one today! had an article that I thought was too good not to share. It is titled Gmaps 101 - An Introduction to Google Maps & The Google Maps API (Part 1). It is written by Eric Pimpler the owner of Geospatial Training & Consulting, LLC, a provider of virtual and instructor led GIS training opportunities and the author of its popular virtual training course “Google Maps For Your Apps!” and the new PDF book “Google Maps API: The New World of Web Mapping”. Eric is also a Texan and has done some work for SCAUG! "In this first article of a three part series on the Google Maps API you will discover the fundamental programming constructs for developing web mapping applications with the hottest web mapping application development tool. Once we walk you through this tutorial you will feel comfortable with Google maps, you'll know how to get your own maps key, and be up and running with your own Google map with basic controls." Check it out at Enjoy!!
