The Fantasy World 'Tyria' on Google Maps

I have completed one more task in my never ending quest to see every MMORPG game world displayed with the Google Maps API. The Guild Wars 2 Interactive Map is a map of the fantasy world of Tyria used in Guild Wars 2.

Using the map it is possible to find dungeons, waypoints and other important locations used in the game. The map also includes an editing tool so that users can add and submit their own knowledge of locations used in the game to the map.

The drop-down menus at the top of the map allow users to add points of interest to the map in a number of categories. When users have finished adding their knowledge to the map they simply need to click the 'send for approval' button.

This Guild Wars 2 WvW Map is a Google Map of the world of Tyria used in the massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

The map follows a now familiar pattern for on-line game maps, allowing the user to view important locations in the game using the Google Maps controls. The map allows users to view the locations of Towers, Keeps, Supply Camps, Spawns, Castles and Orbs.

One nice new feature introduced by the Guild Wars 2 WvW Map is the ability to add weapons to the map. When you add a siege equipment to the map the range of the weapon is also displayed which should greatly help players in planning their campaigns.

The weapons range display is really a must for me. Hate getting my toes burned by being in range.

Will you do google maps of the Zelda games like Majoras Mask showing where all the treasure chests can be found and those holes you fall in to secret chambers?

Is there any way to get the sourcecode of the world map?

I'd like to build something like where you can maintain your own map, or the community map, but with the whole world of tyria, and not just the farming maps.
