eBay Searching + Google Maps
Here is a new eBay/Google Maps search tool which joins the Google Maps mashup scene as the second known eBay Google Maps mashup. Drasko Markovic has been putting the finishing touches on this tool to allow you to search the eBay database along your present U.S. zip code. On the search result Google Map, the markers will circle around the center of your zip code if there are several items in the same place. To give it a test drive, use the default zip code that is in the search field.
Drasko created this tool using the following tools and APIs:
Auction data: eBay XML API.
Maps: Google and Navteq.
Zip geocoding: Brainoff by Mikel Maron
This page uses: PDmarker by Pixel Development
