Background. Google Maps has a really well documented API, and the maps are really cool. I wanted to see quite how easy it all was.
Google Maps API. The solution I’ve created uses the API to display and customise a map, adding markers and descriptive text. It uses the marker manager to control which markers are displayed at which zoom level. All data is stored in a separate file for easy updating and you can filter which types of marker to display on screen, zoom into Canterbury or London to see those bits.
