We've been busy this year! Come learn about some new, some hidden, and some surprising features of the Maps API, Earth API, Fusion Tables and other APIs you may not even realise exist.
KML is the most used geographic display language in the world. As the volume of data that needs to be displayed on a Map or in Google Earth increases, an awareness perfomance becomes increasingly important. We will be discussing techniques for reducing bandwidth usage, applying incremental changes, styling, and other ways to supercharge your KML.
Building a robust interactive map with a lot of data involves more than just adding a few placemarks. We'll talk about integrating with existing GIS software, importing data from shapefiles and other formats, map projections, and techniques for managing, analyzing, and rendering large datasets.
