Google Maps API

Recommended Posts

I thought I'd have a look at the Google Maps Javascript API. It was just a bit of an experiment really to see how easy it was for a non techy to map data for a website. Google has some pretty decent tutorials, and it actually was easy to follow  and knocked up a map with markers driven off a XML table! I found a postcode to longitude, and latitude postcode dataset to match to my data but I think the way to go is to use the Google Geocoding API or similar as postcode mapping was not  accurate enough ! Actually I have seen this on actual commercial websites where locations are in the wrong places! Presumably the precision costs eventually ?

edit:also does anyone have a preference service for doing the geocoding?
