Mashup of Tall Buildings
This is a proof-of-concept blog to show what can be done by combining 'my local guru' (www.mylocalguru.com) with a standard blog authoring tool, in this case Blogger. The aim is to produce something that could be described as a Google maps mashup without having to write any code. This blog takes as its subject matter 'tall buildings'.
The steps required to build this demo:
- Create this blog
- Register as a user on mylocalguru and add this blog as one of my feeds
- Grab the map URL from mylocalguru for this feed/blog
- Include the map URL in a blog post
(use it as the
<iframe>, remembering to add the
&iframe=1parameter to the map URL)
- Write blog posts about individual buildings and 'geotag' them ... then just sit back and let mylocalguru keep everything woven together.
