1.1 Introduction

If you've ever wanted to create an interactive map application, then this is the course for you. Let's get started! Source files for this course are available on GitHub. You can also access each lesson and interact with the maps in the browser using Plunker.

1.1 Introduction

Everyone knows how to use Google Maps and you may have even embedded one in a website before. However, in this course, we're gonna get down into the weeds using the Google Maps JavaScript API. If you've ever wanted to create an interactive map before, then this is the course for you. We'll start off by learning how to create and configure different kinds of maps, and then we'll learn how to go and attach events to these maps, as well as creating customized markers. We'll also learn how to keep track of these markers, and find and filter them in advanced ways. We'll also tap into some of the powerful services that Google Maps provides, such as geocoding. And since a lot of these processes require some of the same code, we'll be abstracting all of this out into our own custom library. So by the end of this course, you'll be able to take the library that we created and apply it to your own application. So I hope to see you in the next lesson. [BLANK_AUDIO]
