Google Maps API Tutorial This tutorial is intended to help you create your own interactive maps using the Google API. Do take a look at the Google documentation .
GeoCommons is the public community of GeoIQ users who are building an open repository of data and maps for the world. The GeoIQ platform includes a large number of features that empower you to easily access, visualize and analyze your data. We've highlighted just a few of these features below. You can watch any of our videos to learn more, or just sign up for free to get started building your own maps.
Overlays Overview Overlays are objects on the map that are tied to latitude/longitude coordinates, so they move when you drag or zoom the map. Overlays reflect objects that you "add" to the map to designate points, lines, areas, or collections of objects. The Maps API has several types of overlays: Single locations on the map are displayed using markers .
This is a special version of the GPS Visualizer map form that's designed for plotting quantifiable data on a map. You can colorize and/or resize the points according to a generic frequency field named "N", or you can use a more typical field, such as altitude, population, or category. If you have track data, or if you don't need to automatically colorize/resize your data points by a particular parameter, you'll probably be better served by the normal Google Maps form , the Google Earth KML form , or the JPEG/PNG/SVG form .
Other map forms: Google Earth KML/KMZ , Quantitative data
Good question. It seems that printing maps created using the Google Maps API is unreliable at best. Every browser seems to behave a little bit differently, so any "tricks" I include to make it work in, say, Firefox, might cause everything to blow up in Internet Explorer. The safest bet is to simply take a screen shot and print that.
