This demo shows you the basics of using the Google Maps API. I have an array of sample date that get dropped around New York, while it will also ask you to authorize your computer (if it has GPS), so that it can figure out where you are. The basic Idea is to use Google Maps so that you’re able to Geo-tag places and leave notes (think Foursquare, Google+ checkins, or FB checkins). The idea was anyone can use the site and post ‘mainly’ anonymous messages about anything with a gps location. Of course for the sake of this demo I’m simply allowing you to click anywhere on the map and add a marker.
If you’ve been experiencing weird behavior with the site lately…
So I had my hosting provider switch me over to a much better .NET server setup this weekend. So all of my sites went through a nameservers change. The hosting company will concurrently run both servers for two weeks just in case not ALL the nameservers are updated… or if I had forgot to grab something from the old servers. It should all be propagating and for the most part not cause any problems….
I also had fun times with WordPress earlier… I thought I’d get fresh and drop in the shortcut icon into the index.php file… lo and behold those changes get carried across into the rss feed… and cause it to not be well formed xml. Digging up through the wordpress docs it’s pretty nicely documented.
