Gmaps 101 - An Introduction to Google Maps & The Google Maps API (Part 2)

Sorry that I've been ignoring the blog. As I've mentioned in previous posts, my girlfriend is on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico working on her thesis research for her Masters (that's what the countdown is for). Anyway, they are having major forest fires there right now and half of the rancho where she is burned yesterday. All of the structures and people are OK, but the forest is not. So, needless to say, I've been a little pre-occupied trying to keep up with that. I found an interested ArcIMS site that uses remote sensing to spot the fire locations. Using the Lat/Long I got for the rancho on Google Earth, I've been able to track the fires in the area. Unfortunately, they don't have access to information like this at the ranch because they don't have interent access. Keep your fingers crossed for all that live in that area.

Today, I'm passing on the second installment of Gmaps 101 - An Introduction to Google Maps & The Google Maps API from the GISUser. The second part takes you into the different tools and features of the Google Maps API. You will learn about the most commonly used classes such as GMap2, GMarker, GLatLng and many others. You will also explore the various map controls that can be placed on a Google Map including panning, zooming, and overview controls. Check it out at 18 Days!!
