The Google Maps Drawing Library
Google Maps API developers can now offer users a range of drawing tools thanks to a new Drawing Library.
If developers include this library in their Google Maps it will allow users to add markers, polygons, polylines, squares and circles to a map. Use the library with a back-end database and you could allow users to add and save shapes to a map. Alternatively you could use the tools to allow users to draw an area to perform a search query.
I'm sure Google Maps developers will think of many other uses for the new Drawing Library tools.
