I recently had to update my imGoogleMaps JQuery Plugin due to problems that arose from the Geocode request rate limitations. As I researched the problem, I delved even more into the Google Maps API. Although this is a minor release, I decided to add custom marker icons to this version. Now you should be able to easily add custom markers to your Google Maps without having to worry about creating the underlying Google Maps API code – JQuery and the imGoogleMaps plugin helps you create a customized map in the fraction of the time. I also added the ability to display a phone number and a description for each address in the infoWindow.
When I upgraded my imGoogleMaps JQuery Plugin, I had to create a custom control button on the Google Map. The Control allows the user to add a Street View Overlay to the map. To create the control, I had to assign a prototype object to the instance of the GControl object.
I have recently been updating the JQuery imGoogleMaps Plugin that I created earlier this year. The new version of the plugin will display multiple addresses on a Google Map. I’ll discuss the updated version of the imGoogleMaps plugin in another post. In this post, I’ll discuss how to use JQuery to load multiple addresses from Json data.
