How to: Custom maps on websites
Posted 15 August 2006 - 08:59 AM
1. Implement a custom tileset within Google Maps
3. Utilize this code from Pragmatic Programmers, from the book Pragmatic AJAX, a Web 2.0 Primer
You will certainly need a tile cutting script. There is a Java based on available from pragprog.com, but the one I prefer to use is located on Mapki.com, and is a script that runs in Photoshop.
I would be more than happy to explain (what I know) and discuss issues anyone has with trying to implement any of these solutions. I've basically done all three at one point or another.

If anybody else feels like writing up a tutorial on something and posting it here, feel free to do so. Doesn't have to be elaborate, just a few links could already be enough.

Design is the intermediary between information and understanding

If you want to post a custom map you can also use Zoomifier EZ. You just drag your image file onto the cutter and it automatically creates a folder full of map tiles to feed into the flash interface. Nice, minimalist design, plus it is free:
That's really cool! Thanks!
