Google Maps

I work in a company who’s main job is to get stuff from one place to another. So you can imagine that it might be a good idea to show people where the stuff is going. When my Guvnor said “could you have a look at Google Maps API for ActionScript” I was happy to oblige. The main Developer Guide is here, and there is a ton of demos here.

I’ve already had a go with the first maps API for JavaScript, so I was off to head start. But it only took a couple of hours to get a map up and programmatically create a couple of markers and centre and zoom the map on those markers.

And the icing on the cake is that sweet taste of Free-ness…
