DGTL12002 Week 5

Research and find out some information on what the Google Maps API is and then explain this in your blog post (referencing your sources by linking to them).

Create and publish a blog post showing a site of significance to you via Google Maps. Do not publish your home address. If you are adventurous you could even document a trail of some sort. Embed the map in your blog or a post a link to a Google map for your week 5 blog post. There is information on how to do this in the week 5 tutorial instructions.


For users wanting to create or view a map with key features, “The Google Maps JavaScript API is a powerful, popular mapping API. It’s simple to use to add maps to your website, or web or mobile application, and provides a wide range of services and utilities for data visualization, map manipulation, directions, and more” (2016).

My Google Maps post:

The map details Green Point in Cape Town, South Africa. In 2010, my husband and I spent three weeks in South Africa and it has been, by far, our most memorable and favourite holiday destination. The route tracks where we stayed in Cape Town and a restaurant we visited.  We had a great time at this restaurant as we were celebrating our first wedding anniversary that night.
