Google announced today a new blog called Google LatLong dedicated to providing updates on their Maps, Earth and Local services.
“As web mapping (dare I say “the geoweb”?) matures, we’re finding that we have a lot more to communicate about new developments in Earth, Maps, Local, and our APIs,” writes Google Maps/Earth director John Hanke. “Our goal is to help foster the ecosystem of geo development across the web.”
If you’re interested in creating Google Maps from scratch, make sure to follow this blog. Google’s engineers are making the API easier and more flexible to use every day. No word yet on whether the Google Maps API Blog will soldier on.
