Google Maps with Custom Categories

POI Auto Map

The POI Auto Map application allows users to create an interactive map with custom categories to embed in their websites.

Creating a map is very simple. Simply set your initial address and the point of information categories and create your map. The points of interest are retrieved automatically from Google Local Search. You can also add your own category of points of interest from locations held in an XML file.

The created map includes the points of interest plus options to view Street View, Wikipedia entries and geo-tagged photographs.

Here are a couple of working examples of POI Auto Maps:
