A New Home for the Google Maps API
Google has released a new and improved Google Maps API website.
The new site includes all the Google Maps API developer documentation and a new Developer Showcase page that provides examples of some of the best websites and applications that have been created with the Google Maps API.
If you like looking at maps then you'll love the Developer Showcase!
The Developer Showcase can be filtered by API, e.g. Street View API, Places API, Fusion Tables and Google Earth API. It can also be filtered by the type of website, e.g. weather, travel, crime etc and by Google Maps API features, for example Styled Maps, Custom Tiles and Elevation.
The showcase therefore provides a great insight into what can be created with the API and a great resource for developers looking to see what others have created with the API.
