GIS Mashups for Geospatial Professionals

Summary and Final Tasks


In this lesson, you've seen how to modify the Google Maps user interface and basemap, open info windows when markers are clicked, implement a custom marker icon, and code the addition of line and polygon overlays. To this point, we've only dealt with a small number of points and have been able to hard-code their locations in our JavaScript code.

In the next lesson, you'll learn how to handle a larger volume of data than can be hard-coded into your page.  You'll also learn how to add a sidebar that lists the names of your features and how to use the API's address geocoder.
