WebDNA Google Map Mashup

Generate a Google map with pins on your database addresses

This is a fairly simple code snippet that will generate a Google map of your founditems. The map code itself is small and tidy, and takes only a few variables to define the default map's size, centerpoint and zoom level. You will also need to make a quick trip to Google to fetch a free key good for any map at your specific domain name.

The hard part of the operation is mapping your addresses with longitude and latitude coordinates. I've written a script that helps in this regard using a simple scraping method (no special API calls or unwieldy XML necessary). Instructions are on the two pages that comprise the module.
