Custom Google Maps

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

The Google Maps Drawing Manager provides a control for drawing markers, polylines, circles, rectangles, and polygons on the map.

When the markup is complete, we can use the other methods of the Maps API to extract data from the shapes, such as coordinates, center, radius, or bounding box, depending on the type of shape.

Having extracted these data, we can then send the data to a server-side program to store them in a spatial database.
