Poorly written article, but the story is tragic and compelling.

One could spend hours on this site.  Worth checking out how your own products rate.

Here's a photo sphere I took a couple weeks ago on top of the Grand Teton (13,770 ft, 4,199 m) in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

If you readily and actively develop with the Google Maps API, and you're passionate about helping developers build valuable applications:

Our team is growing.  I'm looking to hire two Developer Advocates for the Google Maps Developer Relations team.  Mountain View and Sydney, Australia.  See the link below.

Good luck with the search.  I'd love to do this in principle but MV and Sydney are out of the question right now and the Maps API has temporarily taken a back seat.

If you're building maps on mobile +Brett Morgan's recent episode on InfoWindows in the Google Maps SDK for iOS is worth a watch.  He throws in an Aussie accent for free :-)
 
The latest post on the Google Geo Developers Blog by +Mano Marks, Fab Friday is Custom Made (http://goo.gl/zIm47A) contains this video by +Brett Morgan on Custom InfoWindows in the Google Maps SDK for iOS. It also has a conference announcement and a timeline map of Swiss Cantons joining the Confederation.

Hi Andres,

Here's a gist of what we are trying to do.

We have some co-ordinate information (latitude and longitudes), and a bunch of annotations for these co-ordinates on the server. We want to embed a Google Map (or Google Earth) inside our web page, which shows these co-ordinates as balloons (or some icon) and annotate them with relevant information.

We have seen videos where this is done manually (copying the embed URL into our HTML page, or open a kml/kmz file in Google Earth etc), but we cannot have any manual step in between, as this is used by end users (clients) who cannot do this. We need to do this programmatically.

We want to what is the best way to go about doing this? Also, in the future we want to update the map dynamically with live data.

Thanks in advance.
 
Please share your suggestion to my mil id: kcprashanthc@gmail.com

The latest Map of the Week takes advantage of our Elevation API (http://goo.gl/ZRB1PI) to show how steep streets are in San Francisco. A really cool and useful visualization.
Map of the Week: Hill Mapper San Francisco Hill Mapper San Francisco uses the Elevation API to show how steep streets are in San Francisco. Streets that go uphill, relative to the current location of the marker, are red...

Another great feature makes it into the Google Maps SDK for iOS :-)
 
The latest Maps Shortcut episode aired today, with +Brett Morgan discussing using Google Street View in the Google Maps SDK for iOS (http://goo.gl/eD7jee).

A group of us visited the Chocolate Garage as part of a team offsite. Sunita did a wonderful job of educating us on various aspects of chocolate and then setting up a chocolate tasting. The chocolate was AWESOME, and her mission to foster education and support "happy chocolate" is great. If you're in the Bay Area, you should definitely check out the Chocolate Garage. We will be back.
