Wikipedia and Panoramio Now in API
Google Maps developers can now add Wikipedia and Panoramio layers to their Google Maps mash-ups. Both of the layers display icons on top of a Google Map which when opened either open a Wikipedia article or a photo from Panoramio. If you have used Google Maps recently you will have seen this in action under the 'more' button.
You can add either layer to a map with Layer object which you can read more about in the documentation.
As an example of both layers in action I have added the Wikipedia and Panoramio layers to this Video Map of the World.
