Styled Static Maps Launches

Google has released Styled Static Maps. This means that developers can now use Styled Maps not only with the Google Maps V3 API and the Maps API for Flash but with the Static Maps API as well. The Static Maps API is useful for those who want to display a map in a browser where Javascript or Flash isn’t supported or to create a lightweight thumbnail map.

The Static Maps API Wizard is a great tool for creating static maps. Currently it doesn't include options to create a styled map, so there could be a good opportunity here for a developer to create a Static Styled Map Wizard app.
