Google Calendar & Google Maps

OUseful gCalMap Mashup Tool

Would you like to view your upcoming Google Calendar entries on Google Maps? OUseful has a really neat tool that can generate the code to embed a Google Calendar alongside a Google Map.

To use the tool all you have to do is insert a calendar ID (the tool explains where you can get the code) and the gCalMap Mashup tool will generate the html code that you can cut and paste into a website or blog.

One of the beautiful things about this tool is that you don't have to embed a calendar of your own making. For example you can grab the Google Calendar link from websites like Upcoming and create a Calendar Map.

So, for example, if you would like to display a map of Upcoming gigs in New York on your website all you need to do is get the Google Calendar link from Upcoming, grab the calendar id, insert it into the gCalMap Mashup tool and cut and paste the generated code.

Sweet and simple.

Hi, I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but which code do I have to put in the "Where:" field at Google Calendar to get the address mapped? Thanks for your help!
