Price when reviewed

In its default form, Google Maps (maps.google.com) is a powerful piece of mapping software, but for webmasters, programmers and dedicated hobbyists, it’s also an endlessly customisable API. Examples of Google Maps mashups abound, but for those keen on creating their own, or seeing how the best ones are done, Google Maps Hacks by Rich Gibson and Schuyler Erle offers an extensive reference guide to getting the most from the application, as well as adapting it to your own requirements. Reprogramming Google Maps is complicated, but Google Maps Hacks does a good job of explaining how to add functions as well as explaining why, so you can continue to tinker once the book is finished.
