Map Scripting 101: An Example-Driven Guide to Building Interactive Maps with Bing, Yahoo!, and Google Maps Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Websites like MapQuest and Google Maps have transformed the way we think about maps. But these services do more than offer driving directions—they provide APIs that web developers can use to build highly customized map-based applications.

In Map Scripting 101, author Adam DuVander delivers 73 immediately useful scripts that will show you how to create interactive maps and mashups. You'll build tools like a local concert tracker, a real-time weather map, a Twitter friend-finder, an annotated map of Central Park, and much more. And because the book is based on the cross-platform Mapstraction JavaScript library, everything you create will be able to use nearly any mapping service, including OpenStreetMap, MapQuest, Google, Yahoo!, and Bing.

You'll also learn how to:

  • Create, embed, and manipulate basic maps by setting zoom levels and map boundaries
  • Show, hide, and filter location markers and info-bubbles
  • Customize your maps for visitors based on their location
  • Use common data formats like GPS XML, Google Earth's KML, and GeoRSS
  • Create graphical overlays on maps to better analyze data and trends
  • Use freely available geodata from websites like Yelp and Upcoming—and public domain geodata from the US government

Map Scripting 101 is perfect for any web developer getting started with map scripting, whether you want to track earthquakes around the world, or just mark the best coffee shops in Dubuque.

Book News Annotation:

This guide introduces cartography and map scripting to beginning and advanced web developers and shows how to use APIs found on map websites to create mashups with geo-data from other web sites. Cartographers who want to move their maps online can also use the book. After a chapter on mapping basics, the book presents common geographic projects and provides 73 scripts and examples to show how to create interactive maps and mashups such as a weather map, a Twitter friend finder, and mapping of the local police blotter. The scripts are based on the open-source Mapstraction JavaScript library, so they are compatible with most mapping services. Appendices offer a JavaScript primer/refresher and a Mapstraction reference. Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is required. DuVander writes for Programmable Web and WebMonkey.

Synopsis:

Web services like Mapquest and Google Maps have transformed the way we think about and use maps. But these services do more than just driving directions-they provide APIs that web developers can use to build customized map applications. In Map Scripting 101, author Adam DuVander uses a project-based approach to teach you how to create useful and fun online map mashups like weather maps and local concert trackers. DuVander shows you how to use Mapstraction, an open source JavaScript library, to create and manipulate basic maps by setting zoom levels, showing and hiding markers, geocoding addresses, customizing maps for visitors based on their locales, and so on. You'll also learn to handle complex GIS (geographic information system) data and formats like KML and GeoRSS, and to create graphical overlays to make sense of data and trends. This is a perfect book for any web developer, whether their goal is to build a map to track earthquakes around the world, or to simply mark the best coffee shops in town.
