Google Map API released today

6/29/2005 04:37:00 PM, posted by anand

Check it out here: http://www.google.com/apis/maps/. This should be a boon to people who where earlier doing screen scraping (or rather URL scraping).

Things to note:
# Just javascript, they've eliminated the XML
# There's no routing API, only mapping for now
# There's no local search.
# There's no geocoding

I bet, now we shall see a new wave of applications that use this API in some creative manner. Heck, I am even thinking of a few uses where my FooBar Search Alerts can use the map API.

Also, there is a Yahoo Maps API here: http://developer.yahoo.net/maps/
