Excellent tutorial from Daniel Sato on using Google’s My Maps to build interactive maps with style.
A good tutorial on how to route data from a Google Spreadsheet (with no lat/long data) through Yahoo Pipes for geocoding purposes, and then out to Google Maps. One nitpick: I couldn’t get this to work with the RSS feed from Pipes; I used the KML instead.
To be fair, these aren’t 3 “easy” steps or 3 “relatively uncomplicated” steps (several wizards are involved) BUT the result is awesome, and indeed, requires no coding knowledge.
Fun looking maps with lists of points stripped down the side. via Zac.
This is genius.Thanks, Simon.
Sounds like a fun way to put together a quick app, if you already have all these pieces sitting around the server. via dsato.
As promised, no need for third-party web maps apps anymore. Google trumps. Embeddable My Maps with lots of features. Bow down before Mountain View’s master plan.
