Key editing features currently available in Google Maps include: We’ll continue to add new editing features within Google Maps on an ongoing basis. To keep contributing your local knowledge to Google Maps and engage with a passionate community of likeminded individuals, we invite you to join the Local Guides program where you can do things like: Earn points Unlock rewards for submitting edits and other information Get early access to new Google Map features.

Maps Javascript API V3 Basics - Google Maps JavaScript API V3 - Google Code Developing for Mobile Devices The Google Maps API v3 has been designed to load quickly and work well on mobile devices. In particular, we have focused on development for advanced mobile devices such as Android and iOS handsets. Mobile devices have smaller screen sizes than typical browsers on the desktop. As well, they often have particular behavior specific to those devices (such as "pinch-to-zoom"). Set the <div> containing your map to have width and height attributes of 100%. For more information on development for the iPhone, consult Apple's Developer documentation. Localization You may localize your Maps API application both by altering default language settings and by setting the application's region code, which alters how it behaves based on a given country or territory. Language Localization The Google Maps API uses the browser's preferred language setting when displaying textual information such as the names for controls, copyright notices, driving directions and labels on maps.

An Overview of Using KML in the Earth API - Google Earth API - Google Code Roman Nurik, Google Geo APIs Team January 2009 KML is a file format used to display geographic data in an Earth browser such as Google Earth, Google Maps, and Google Maps for Mobile. It was originally designed by Keyhole, Inc. (acquired by Google) and is currently maintained by the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC). You can find a significant amount of documentation for KML on Google Code and a large assortment of community-contributed KML datasets can be found in the Google Earth Gallery. KML plays an important role in all of the Google Geo developer products, especially the Google Earth API. This article assumes you are familiar with JavaScript and know the basics of the Earth API. In summary, if you need a quick and easy way of showing a hosted KML file and you do not need to do any intermediate processing, use the KmlNetworkLink approach. Suppose that you want to do some intermediate processing before displaying a KML file in the Google Earth Plug-in. <? Behind the scenes
