Mapplets API Demo Gallery

Google have launched a Mapplets API Demo Gallery. Mapplets are user created applications that run within Google Maps. You can create Mapplets that add new features to Google Maps or use them to overlay your data on Google Maps. The new gallery should give you some ideas about what can be achieved with Mapplets. You can even view the code for the Mapplets!

Here are some of the Mapplets on show in the gallery:

Census Demographics
Uses TileLayerOverlay to show choropleth maps of various demographics from the 2000 US Census, and uses the tabs library for the interface.
