Presentation Transcript

  1. Interactive (Google) Maps • Google has available APIs for building “Interactive Map” web pages • Yahoo also has APIs for building “Interactive Map” web pages • For this presentation we will work with Google maps • A Google Maps API tutorial • A simpler approach is to use “Map Builder” an Internet based map builder Continue

  2. Interactive (Google) Maps (2) • 1st you have to get a “key” from Google • 2nd you need to get the Geodetic coordinates (Latitude - Longitude) of your point of interest • Google Earth is a good source • 3rd your Geodetic coordinates must be in decimal degree format • An FCC site does this for you Continue

  3. Interactive (Google) Maps (3) • 4th Using Map Builder’s website fill out the form • 5th Generate the source code • 6th Insert the source code into a new web page • Trivia – Earth Facts • Example of an Interactive Map Home

  4. Earth Facts • Diameter @ Equator = 7926.28 miles • Distance between Poles = 7899.80 miles or 26.48 miles difference • Circumference @ Equator = 24901.55 miles • Circumference between Poles = 24859.82 miles or 41.73 miles difference Continue

  5. 1 degree of circumference @ Equator = 69.17 miles • 1 minute of circumference @ Equator = 1.153 miles or 6087.05 feet • 1 second of circumference @ Equator = 101.45 feet • 0.000001 degree of circumference @ Equator = 4.382 inches • At 30 Degrees Latitude 0.000001 degree of circumference = 2.921 inches Source: http://geography.about.com/od/learnabouttheearth/a/earthfacts.html Return
