 Tutorial: Create a Google MyMap, add your flickr photos from a Mapplet, then embed in your website - As of this week, adding a Google map, or even better, your Google "MyMaps", to your webpage is a snap. You know how simple it is to embed a youTube video into your blog? Well, it's that simple. Here's a short tutorial to show you how simple it can be. We'll create a custom google MyMap, add a Mapplet, embed some photos from our flickr account, save the map, and embed it within a website... no problemmo! To finish I'll offer up a couple of photo geotagging tools for those of you with GPS-enabled cell phones and a tool for mannual geotagging for those with no access to GPS. If you enjoy Google maps, flickr, and geotagging photos then this tutorial is for you!

Google Earth 101 - Using the Image Overlay Tool in Google Earth - In this article you will learn how to use the image overlay functionality provided in Google Earth to import existing images into the 3D display and drape them over the existing terrain.  Many image file formats can be displayed in Google Earth including jpg, bmp, gif, tiff, tga, png, and a number of others. 

Google MyMaps + TakItWithMe + Garmin Communicator API = WOW! Every once in a while an application comes along that makes you sit back and say... WOW! TakItWithMe is a new service for uploading Google My Maps and Google Earth KML content to Garmin and other handheld devices.  TakItWithMe is a free service and supports most Garmin hand-held devices by leveraging the newly announced Garmin Communicator API.

A Look at the Geocoding Functionality Build Into Google Maps API V2  When the Google Maps API was released in early 2005, one of the most notable omissions was the ability to geocode addresses.  This posed more of an inconvenience that anything else as there are many geocoding APIs available from various sources, some of which are free to use. 

 Lat49 A Mashup Advertising Engine to help monetize map mashups - Google has laid the foundation for map mashup development -- more tools, more exposure... etc... Now there's a solution from LAT49 (Beta) to help put more cash in the pockets of developers and map publishers.
