Map Scripting 101

Websites like MapQuest and Google Maps have transformed the way we think about maps. But these services do more than offer driving directions—they provide APIs that web developers can use to build highly customized map-based applications.

In Map Scripting 101, author Adam DuVander delivers 73 immediately useful scripts that will show you how to create interactive maps and mashups. You'll build tools like a local concert tracker, a real-time weather map, a Twitter friend-finder, an annotated map of Central Park, and much more. And because the book is based on the cross-platform Mapstraction JavaScript library, everything you create will be able to use nearly any mapping service, including OpenStreetMap, MapQuest, Google, Yahoo!, and Bing.

You'll also learn how to:


Create, embed, and manipulate basic maps by setting zoom levels and map boundaries Show, hide, and filter location markers and info-bubbles Customize your maps for visitors based on their location Use common data formats like GPS XML, Google Earth's KML, and GeoRSS Create graphical overlays on maps to better analyze data and trends Use freely available geodata from websites like Yelp and Upcoming—and public domain geodata from the US government
Map Scripting 101 is perfect for any web developer getting started with map scripting, whether you want to track earthquakes around the world, or just mark the best coffee shops in Dubuque.
