Google maps mashup and Gmail Bloopers

August 21st, 2007 by John Wonderlich · No Comments

I just saw via O’Reilly that google released embeddable maps, and decided to take a little foray into attempting an embedded map mashup myself.

We made an entry a week or so ago for Gmail’s promotional video contest, featuring us throwing around an enlargement of the Gmail sign. Using Google’s intuitively designed tools, I drew up a basic map of where most of the video took place. Click on the blue pins in the map to see the video and details.

Make sure to watch the bloopers video, which was pretty hilariously edited by Nisha.
