Solmetra Maps is a tiny class I developed while working on just another of my personal sites - trippingshoes.com. Mainly because I wanted to play with Google Maps API. It is a simple Google Maps API wrapper that utilizes third party geocoding webservice to relate real life queries to a physical location on a map and display them. The functionality Google Maps API does not provide.
Despite the fact that I’m geting a decent amount of positive feedback about this class, I don’t consider it to be truly useful utility. At least not until it has address search support.
So in the upcoming months — whenever I will have spare time (from gaming and handling my kids) — I will be researching into recently released Google AJAX Search API. It, among other miraculously cool things, is said to support address search. I’m already getting wet about all the things that can be done combining power of Google and AJAX.
