    Anybody have any experience with plotting map points with Google Maps
    API from an Access DB to an ASP page?

    I have tried some of the .asp groups with no luck. Somebody suggested
    I search the access groups.

    I have a database with about 90 locations that I would like positioned
    in the Google Maps. I found a cool tool to get the long and latitudes
    to complete the database, now just need to figure out how to get all
    that data to appear on the maps.

    All guidance appreicated.

    I don't think the issue is either Access or ASP. <g>

    I don't think you can work with actual API calls from ASP. However, assuming
    Google is misusing the term API, what exactly is required for the ASP page
    to pass to Google in order to get a map to appear? Do you have that
    information available in your database?

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for but here is a sample call I got
    when I registered to get a key....
    =======================================================================================
    Here is an example web page to get you started on your way to mapping glory:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <script
    src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=1&key=ABQIAAAAdE9THrL2kUoyLjbyEneEYRQPkNX1Dv76iLH3Y0fgTTD-JRNNWRTCLwMTenms_NLht2JHPbuxqn8w5Q"
    type="text/javascript"></script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="map" style="width: 500px; height: 400px"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    //<![CDATA[

    var map = new GMap(document.getElementById("map"));
    map.addControl(new GSmallMapControl());
    map.centerAndZoom(new GPoint(-122.1419, 37.4419), 4);

    //]]>
    </script>
    </body>
    </html>=======================================================================================================You'd
    need to change the static lat/long with values from your DB and I believe
    you need to register to get your own API key. The link to the Google Maps
    API info is http://www.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
