Hey Guys! I was wondering if anyone out there is good with Google Maps and could create a custom map system for my website. We’re doing a 10,000 mile bicycle ride which we will be blogging about on our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/ridetorio, we’re gonna be feeding the facebook blog notes into our website through RSS , but what i want to do is make a really cool interactive map that plots the route as we go based on a keyword location in the entries title.
For instance, it would read from the RSS : http://www.facebook.com/feeds/notes.php?id=289106074452655&viewer=166600260&key=AWiV2vPdbAX2z1Sx&format=rss20
And from that it would look in the titles for possible world locations, so if we typed in Baja Sur, Mexico, then it would automagically make that a marker on the map and create a line from the previous entries location, and clicking on the marker would bring up the title with a link through to the facebook blog entry in a lightbox on our main website’s page.
Basically, i want something like the maps on travelpod, but i want it to figure out where the places are based on the titles of our blog entries.
I hope that makes sense, feel free to ask any questions!
I’m open to offers money wise let me know how difficult you think this would be to achieve!
Thats pretty neat! I don’t think i’ll need the streetview aspect of things as we’ll be going through some countries that definitely are missing it… so i’m not sure if this would really work for what i need? I’ll take a look at the code though for sure thanks for your reply!
