Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Google has a new release of version 3 for the Google Maps API. While its JavaScript API still looks similar to previous versions of the Google Maps API, much has changed under the hood with version 3, which has been designed to load fast, especially on today's mobile browsers and platforms, such as Android-based devices and the iPhone.

Given the debut of the Google Maps API 3, authors Mike Purvis and Victor Sumner felt it was time for an update of their popular Beginning Google Maps Applications. In this important second edition, they've created a comprehensive introduction to Google Maps API 3, including the following: A focus on guiding you beyond simple tasks to the specifics of common and interesting projects Plot points and other geometry, both from an internal source and a public one like www.data.gov How to deal with data larger than 100 points (both the technical hurdles and the UI issues) What you'll learn The fundamentals of the new Google Maps API 3, moving quickly into territory that many readers would have difficulty with when working alone or from Internet tutorials How to access Google Maps and GIS data with Ajax/JavaScript How to deal with lots of data as you move from toy to real-world applications How to develop user interfaces for big data sets How to render tiles with data How to use various web services with Google Maps effectively How to integrate what you learn with a capstone case study How to deploy on today's mobile platforms like Android and the iPhone, as well as desktops and more Who is this book for?

This book could be enjoyed by a complete beginner, but the intended audience is a person with some exposure to programming, especially in languages like C]+, Java, and PHP. An understanding of HTML and basic control flow is assumed, but the aspects of JavaScript relevant to the topics will receive coverage in sidebars.
