Google Maps API Released!

nym | 05:17 PM


Google has released an API for their new Maps service, finally sanctioning the massive amount of hacking that has taken place with their XML based web service. Geo-Hackers have been wondering for the past couple of weeks what has been happening, with various hacks breaking due to changes made by Google. Yesterday (or this morning), Google finally released a very liberal API to build upon their service. You need to register a key based on your url, but as long as you don't use it to sell drugs, limit access to your hack, or go beyond 50K page views in a day, you're basically golden.

Google, good work.
