I finally got around to fixing my Google Maps hack to work with the API:
Put simply, this hack allows just about any geocoded data source to be overlayed on a Google Map. I’ve currently got BBC travel news, Weatherpixies, Flickr photos, UK points of interest, London web cams, GeoURL local web sites and UK Gatso speed cameras on there. Just select a data set from the drop down menu, and everything will automatically update.
Possible future improvements may include:
- More data sets
- Automatically remember your last map / location
- Link to any given map / location
- Use KML internally so my data can be used within Google Earth.
I’m sure there’s lots more I could do too. Suggestions welcome. 🙂
