Google Maps at Where 2.0

Where 2.0
Anybody who is anybody in the geo-world is currently at Where 2.0 (which is why I'm stuck in rainy London). The Google Earth Blog has a good round-up of some of yesterday's conference highlights.

One of yesterday's big announcements at the conference was about the Google Maps Data API. Google have now made it easier to import your geographic data as a single CSV file or KML file. You can read more about this announcement on the Google Geo Developers Blog.

If you are lucky enough to be attending the conference then you can meet Google Maps Mania founder Mike Pegg who is at the Google booth, with other members of the Google Geo Developer team and Enterprise Geo folk that work on the Google Earth vector layers team.
