GEOG 863
GIS Mashups for Geospatial Professionals

Summary and Final Tasks


In this lesson, you continued building on your experience with the Google Maps API by learning how to read data from various data sources, how to add a list of the overlay features to the side of your map, how Google's address geocoder works, and how Ajax programming techniques produce more responsive web applications.

In the next lesson, we'll shift gears by exploring Esri's JavaScript-based mapping API.  It offers a lot of the same functionality that the Google API provides, but it also goes beyond to offer more of the capabilities that we're used to seeing in the GIS world.
