One Map to Rule Them All

APS9 Applications and Standards Track

Rookwood, 4th Floor


What good is a map that you can zoom, click, stretch and interact with if you can't take it with you? You know where the lecture hall is, but how do you get there on your bike? Let's ask the visitor in the parking lot how cool your map is when they are trying to find the admissions office. Maps are now used everywhere and growing in popularity. Can your map keep up? This session explores how to use the new Google Maps V3 API to make all your map dreams come true -- including the one where you're the campus hero for the stellar new iPhone/Android application. One map that just works everywhere. Based on experiences with the Missouri State Map.
