A little Community Server and Google Maps mashup

Published to Blog on 30 Aug 2006

I put together a server control that is a Wrapper for a simple Google Map that will display a Google map along with a marker for one passed in Address/Location.

While it can be used practically anywhere I created it for the purpose of using it with Community Server, specifically on the profile page.

To see the results click on the link to my name below in the byline. Pretty cool, huh?

Binary, source, and instructions coming soon - just need to get some screen shots together and type it up. Can't do it now because Blade is on!

Update: Source zip (solution, project, and source files), and binary only are available.

Update: Instructions for using on CS profile page can be found here.

    Is there any way you could do a CS2007 version of this Google Maps mashup?

    Good idea, Daniel. I'll add it to my ToDo list. I should be able to convert it sometime in the next couple of evenings. Thanks.
