Ewan’s post on Google Maps for all of Europe sent me back to the Google Maps API.

I’ve already wasted quite a bit of time here here and there finding out a lack of javascript hinders the use of the API.

But today I managed to embed a simple map in the Sandaig – De Rank blog via an iFrame: De Rank map which should hopefully help me do a wee bit more. I guess if I knew more about php, and javascript it would be possible to add an extension to a blog to popup a window get a longitude and latitude and build a link into a post to show a particular location.

I guess this comes under what Terry Freedman calls idle curiosities

Later-some experiments :sandaig and de rank schools. (click on the push pins.)
