Mapping Development Websites

May 24, 2009 at 7:27 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

Here are two sites that members interested in doing mapping should explore:

Google Code (click on the ‘APIs and Tools’ link under Developer Resources, and the click on the ‘Geo’ link under Products)

Flickr Services (see also code.flickr)

A rudimentary mapplet can be seen on Google Books, in the ‘About This Book’ section for some books, which feature a ‘Places mentioned in this book’ mapplet; here’s the one for Dracula (scroll to the bottom of the page).

    See VisGets in action and participate in an ongoing study:

    • Thanks for sharing these with the group, Chris. I’m going to set aside some time this weekend to participate in the VisGets study — I encourage the other working group members to participate as well!
