Pimp my Blog

At some point amid a code-a-thon for MunchEasy, I decided it would be good to take some cough medicine, then learn & integrate the Google Maps API. So, uhh.. here it is. I had originally done it with some weird recursive list traversals, but then noticed that I could do it all with one command.  It’s a pretty good approximation of the route we’ll be taking, but as the itinerary isn’t 100% finalized yet there may be changes. Of course, it’s never going to be 100% finalized until we’re back to Go! Note that Google doesn’t let you put more than ~25 points on a map, so I had to cut it into two. The good news is that this API is so easy to use it should be a relative snap to get a “We are here” pin with our exact GPS coordinates. I should go to sleep now. :-)

It seems like it’s working to me, but I might not be doing what you were doing.. The google map (at this point) is just going to have a bunch of pin-points of the cities we’re visiting, so don’t expect too much ;-)

Hey…I tried clicking on your google maps to see your planned route and it said that the page couldn’t be found. Is it down at the moment or am I just proving to myself once again I suck at using the computer?!!
It’s a good thing I’m an IT recruiter huh! =)

Thanks. Can’t wait to see your videos from your trip!
This is an AWESOME idea! =)
