Unofficial Google Maps Viewer 0.9c
Unofficial Google Maps Viewer - Simple public alpha of a Google Maps viewer for the Dashboard.
It is currently in alpha stage, since there is one major bug - it will not show the content in the pop-up pin windows. There is a second bug, though not major - dragging on the map does not work unless you flip to the widget's backside and back again.
Other then this, everything should work - though of course, it is a work in progress, and comments are welcome.
I would like to thank to the people at mygmaps.com, that to a great job in pioneering Google map hacking.
Just to let people know, future plans for this widget include a pop-out sidebar for directions support, support for loading your own xml/xsl mapping files, support for Google's satellite maps (this is already done, just not enabled), and, if I can pull it off, pulling terraserver satellite mapping data into this widget - allowing better resolution, though with older photographs, for the satellite view.
