Custom Google Maps

The examples on these pages are taken from the BCIT course of the same name.

A cleaner method of getting data from the serverside is to use Ajax. This gives us more control over the format of the icons and behaviour of the map.
 
When the user drags the map, an Ajax lookup occurs that returns a new list of cities and their coordinates, which Google Maps uses to create new markers on the map.
