Using custom images to create visually appealing Google Maps

As with most Google Maps API projects, knowledge of HTML and JavaScript is a plus here. Additionally, basic graphic design skills help in creating custom imagery to use on your map.
Another cool campus map from Texas, for Angelo State University. This one uses ImageMapType (http://goo.gl/7Dr98) to overlay map tiles on top of the Google map to create their own look and feel. It's quite a beautiful one.

Using Google Drive data to populate a map

A great little video showing how to create a map based on data stored within Google Drive. In addition to having a place to host this map, limited knowledge of HTML and JavaScript are helpful tools to have if you want to apply the skills learned within this video.
