  • Google Maps API 3 – The basics | In usability we trust
    Markers in Google Maps Next post Free E book on Multi Touch Technologies 32 Comments Tom Skinner June 5 2009 at 10 32 pm Hej och tak så mycket for the nice article Have you found in Google s documentation a list of features in ver 3 that are already included to be included and those that shall be deprecated Reply Gabriel Svennerberg June 6 2009 at 11 04 am To my knowledge such lists does not exist You can however check out the documentation to see what features are implemented I know that the API team continually updates it to reflect the API so you can trust that it is fairly complete Reply Diego Plentz June 25 2009 at 6 10 am Tom you can take a look at http code google com p gmaps api issues issues list q label ApiType Javascript3 Gabriel just one thing I don t need to pass center at least to the map initialization This could be done using map set center but yes it s necessary Reply Gouri September 14 2009 at 5 26 pm Hi I am new to this google maps i liked ur article a lot i was trying this bit i am just getting blank page where am i going wrong function initialize var latlng new google maps LatLng 57 8 14 0 var options zoom 6 center latlng mapTypeId google maps MapTypeId ROADMAP var map new google maps Map document getElementById map options Reply Chris September 28 2009 at 4 59 am Hi Gouri Try adding css rules for height and width to the div thanks chris Reply Binod Shukla November 24 2009 at 2 25 pm Hi Everyone i was trying to use the above code but always got a blank page with a little modification it worked in the body part use the code below function initialize var myLatlng new google maps LatLng 34 397 150 644 var myOptions zoom 8 center myLatlng mapTypeId google maps MapTypeId ROADMAP var map new google maps Map document getElementById map myOptions initialize Reply Arthur January 13 2010 at 2 05 pm Hi I m a beginner to google map api and also I have few knowledge about javascript I have tried all the examples google provided but there is no example that I can use my mouse to draw a line or polygon in a very convenient way Of course there is a way that I can click the start point and end point on the map and then link the start point and end point but that s not what I want Generally we don t draw line like that Usually the place where the mouse is down is the start point of the line and with the moving of the mouse the end of line will change to the position of the mouse when the mouse is up the end point is set to the position where the mouse is up In computer graphic this is called XOR lines I d like to know how this could be realized in google map Thanks a lot Arthur Reply Johan January 26 2010 at 1 46 pm Do we know if it s possible to use v3 with localhost I ve been trying to test v3 but so far I m not getting a map to display and the only conclusion I can make is that it s because I m testing it on localhost Reply coutant February 9 2010 at 2 27 pm Johan I was confused same way Like you I saved the demo file and opened it on localhost but no map is visible But it s not a matter of host It s a matter of css file Yes if you happen to break the link to the css style css file than the map is just not visible because you are missing the height definition included in the css file map height 500px Reply GIO March 11 2010 at 12 02 pm Hi I have anything problem a display the map in the my page I resolved with code I use the attribute tag position relative and width height a specific value width 480px height 465px is not width 40 A other problem is the property option of the function Map is visible boolean both you can use setVisible visible boolean after call th function Map Reply Jorgen May 8 2010 at 8 42 am Great post about getting started with Google Maps Maybe the new map API from CloudMade is also worth a try since it s having some new and very useful features My favorite is the possibility to customize the look of the map so it can be optimized for routing walking sightseeing etc You can see some examples here http tips4php net 2010 05 watch your back google here comes cloudmade maps Reply Sachin June 21 2010 at 9 33 am wondering how to I override the google intelligence of serving static map to mobile devices and not the dynamic map Reply Rheal July 13 2010 at 11 03 pm Do you know if it s possible to use geocode instead of latlng when initializing the script So instead of var latlng new google maps LatLng 57 8 14 0 maybe you could have something like var latlng new google maps geocode 1300 Main st Town State or perhaps use the geocode info and covert it to latlng Reply Gabriel Svennerberg July 14 2010 at 8 20 pm Rheal Yes you can do that but you need to perform the geocoding first and store the LatLng in a variable that you use later when initializing the map Reply Justin August 17 2010 at 11 38 pm RE Rheal and Gabriel If you were to perform the geocoding first what would that look like Below is a fictitious address The script fetches some JSON data from google my very first time ever dealing with JSON and I m completely clueless

  • XHTML | In usability we trust
    but seem to have fallen out of grace Probably due to accessibility problems and the rise of CSS based designs I think that it still has it s place when used properly and one being aware of it s potential accessibility problems In a recent project I was building a map where different regions of a map would highlight when you hover with the mouse over it Using an imagemap in combination with CSS and JavaScript seemed like the natural way to do it I thought that to actually code this solution would be pretty straightforward but soon discovered some peculiar quirks I also couldn t find any information about this so I thought that I d share my experiences with you Continue reading I miss X Ray July 9 2008 Gabriel Svennerberg 3 Comments I really hope that Stuart Robertsson the maker of the ingenious Firefox Add on X Ray updates it to work with Firefox 3 soon I don t think I ve realized how much I ve relied on this add on in my daily work until now that it doesn t work anymore Continue reading Ultimate site logo June 25 2008 Gabriel Svennerberg 4 Comments To have a good site logo is important It s one of the things that distinguish your web site from everybody else s It s also a design element that exists on all pages within your site Naturally you want it to be good looking but at the same time it needs to be accessible and also search engine friendly To do this properly there are some techniques worth knowing In this article I will show you the approach I ve taken on my own blog In my opinion a good site logo have these characteristics It s search engine optimized
