Das Buch ist didaktisch sehr gut aufgebaut, geht in die Tiefe der Google Maps API, aber - und das finde ich extrem angenehm - erkärt auch in Grundzügen die Technologien, die man außerhalb der Google Maps API ebenfalls benötigt, wie Javascript, XML, Kartenprojektionen, etc.

HASH(0xa746ec30) von 5 Sternen The Definitive Book on Google Map Programming 30. April 2014
Von Robin T. Wernick - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have purchased six previous books on Google Maps in order to learn how to design either a web interface to display my own annotated maps or hopefully a separate application to do plotting on a map. All of that was in vain because the previous books focused on the simple use of Google Maps or on putting markers on a map. They were highly disappointing to me.

Finally, a definitive guide to using, programming, and interactive drawing has arrived with this book!
1. Introduction to mapping presentations and Google's choices.

2. Designing web pages with embedded maps, event handling, and markers. Most books stop here in their introductions.

3. Javascript programming. A very competent introduction to using Javascript and HTML to display maps.

4. Advanced Javascript programming. Here the deeper details of getting Javascript to work interactively and in depth.

5. This is where it begins, the Google API laid out for your use. Make Google Maps jump up and do your bidding.

6. Embedding maps in desktop Apps. Here is the "Holy Grail" of mapping operations. This is where you get to own the treasure and get Google to run at the heart of your very own design. It's about time. Imagine being able to get the map you want to display, mark it up with path traces, geodesic traces, and compare multiple route lengths and travel time using your own database. Well, its all right here.

7. Markers: Using them intelligently and inventing a few of your own.

8. Features: Drawing paths and shapes on your map.

9. Interactive Drawing: How to control placement of vertices and drawing shapes on your map with a mouse.

10.Geodesic Calculations: Getting serious with map measurements. Defining path metrics and exercising the Geometry Library.

11. The KML data format: Saving the results for later viewing and comparisons. Generating KML files, the globally recognized file type for holding geographical data. This format has also been used for maps of the moon and Mars. How else are you going to compare the layout of Cydonia on Mars with Mexico's Teotihuacan and Egypt's land of Re?

12. Adding GIS Features to Mapping Applications: Building the full featured mapping application. A galary of useful items including comparing distances from files and making correct database querys for map items.

13. Spacial Databases and SQL Queries: You're going to need this if you want to any serious geodesic mapping requests on the web. The sum of map information out there would fill up several terabytes of drives. It's much better to ask for what you need when you need it. You will find that PostGreSQL and SQL server have the best datatypes for spacial data management.

14. Marker Clustering: Just one lesson here, don't overload your maps with markers.

15. Web Services: Or how and where to get special data for your maps.

16. Map Annotation: How and where to place map labels. Useful for general map recognition.

17. Geocoding and Direction APIs: If you want to produce travel direction maps, this is the heart of the process.

18. Visualizing Large Datasets: Beware, there is where you can get lost in the vastness of amorphous data returns.

19. Animating Items on the Map: How to move the markers and make your map come alive.

20. Advanced Javascript Animation: Now make the map tell the story in multiple motions. Do you want your airplane paths arc across the world and criss-cross each other as in "Rise of Planet of the Apes" or do you want to plot satellite tracks or show Superman circling the Earth in multiple tracks? Then read this chapter and use the information to make your own movie.

If you need to spend any time working with Google Maps and programming your own web site or application buy this book. Everything you might want to do is in here and remember; your time is worth a lot.

HASH(0xa769f690) von 5 Sternen The Missing Manual 29. März 2014
Von George - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is an excellent book that covers all aspects of the Google Maps API, from basic markers all the way to heatmaps, symbols and animation. It also includes related topics such as KML and SQL Spatial. Most importantly, this book doesn't rehash the documentation; it demonstrates topics with practical applications. Sure the author shows how to place markers on a map, but also explains how to list the same markers in a table alongside the map. Later in the book you will find an application that bypasses the default info windows of Google Maps and displays data about the selected marker on a floating window on top of the map. The chapter on placing lines and polygons on the map goes even further and includes an application that allows users to draw shapes on the map with the mouse. Beginners may prefer a few statements that demonstrate a specific feature, but if you're developing mapping applications ("map-enabled" applications according to the author) you will eventually write code to perform complicated tasks. Context menus is an example that comes to mind, because the author seems to like them. In short, the book delivers what the title promises.

The author is experienced in cartography and has packed a lot of information regarding geodesics and the Mercator projection in a single chapter. It's a great chapter that I enjoyed very much (and the basic reason I post this review).

HASH(0xa769f570) von 5 Sternen Impressively accessible book 26. März 2014
Von Charles Brannon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I've been interested in GIS but had no idea how much functionality is exposed by the Google Maps API. While reading this book I've been learning everything from embedding maps on my web site, to in-depth topics such as storing and accessing geospatial data. Being a little rusty in Javascript I am also pleased that the author included two chapters devoted to Javascript and even a chapter explaining Javascript-based animation. Best of all are the sample applications, which are not only useful themselves but provide clear insight into exactly how you program using the API, and serve as a model for my own applications. Mr Petroutsos leads me every step of the way, making even the most daunting topics accessible. I highly recommend this book and after this experience I will be looking for other works by Mr. Petroutsos, given his talent with tutorials and reference books like this one.

HASH(0xa769f660) von 5 Sternen Four Stars for Book 23. Juli 2014
Von DevGuy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Hey All, I started out really liking this book. There are a lot of good chapters! A good JavaScript chapter or two. I don't work for this company but would like to help make this book better! I started out wanting to know more about google maps so I started with the google web site that is really good to get started. Trial and Error. I found this book on safari books online and started reading it. First half was really good. One thing I didn't like was the sections were it was an captured image of the code. This is hard to read and would have been better to so screen shots in VS2012 with dark theme or other theme which would be better for book printing. I personally think all books should have all the code in the book. I'm not a fan of going to the web site and downloading stuff. For the guy that could not find the source code to download, go to the books Introduction section before Chapter#1 and read the "How to use this book" section and it will tell you how to download the source code. The one think I don't like is the book shows some code and we live in a c-flavior world. C# code was not in the download and no c# code in the book. I would like to see the code in C#. Also why would you show just window forms applications when you can do either WPF or Silverlight. By the way you can do the same embedding of the webbrowser control into either WPF or Silverlight too. The Silverlight webbrowser controls is not as good as in win forms or WPF but you can still interact with HTML/JS.

If the author plans on doing a new version i'd be happy to help with some mobile apps and some c# applicaiton samples. One other thing I did't like was the lack of examples for the phones; windows phone, iPhone and Android phones.

This book will get you started and some good java script code. I'm also interested in seeing some jQuery code in the book. Both the book and google's website didn't have any jQuery examples. I'd personally wrap this code into a good jQuery project.

4 stars - DevGuy

HASH(0xa769f528) von 5 Sternen I am very very disappointed with the book 11. Juli 2014
Von John Smith - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Hi All:

I brought this book because of the positive reviews on the book.
I am very very disappointed with the book.
The book says there is source code to download for the book at the Mc Graw Hill Website.

I don't see the link to download the source code to the book.
So I try to find the email address for the author of the book. I couldn't find his email in the book so I try to contact the author by facebook. Send him an message and no reply from him.

I contact Mc Graw Hill support.

The support person didn't contact the author and tells me there is no source code from the book. It took him 2 business days to tell me. I asked him if he contact the author and he tells me he doesn't know but he doesn't have source code to the book.
The support from McGraw-Hill was totally useless and waste of time.

Without the source code to the book this book is totally useless.
Don't buy this book!!! It's a waste of money.

I also brought the book "Google Maps Javascript API cookbook". This book has the source code to the book so you can try out the sample applications.

I am really very disappointed with this book. It wasn't just a waste of money but time trying to get support for this book.
