How embed Google Maps in Flex?

Google create a special API for Flash platform to make possible use them. I will show how write a simple application to find a place or route. At first we need a special key from Google for use the map ( ). When we have the key we can start.

  1. add xmlns:maps=”*” to Application tag
  2. import appropriate classes
  3. add map instance
  4. <maps:Map id="myMap" width="100%" height="100%"  key="[key from the google site]" mapevent_mapready="onMapReady(event)" url="[url to our site]"/>
  5. add functions
private function onMapReady(event:MapEvent):void {
	myMap.addControl(new MapTypeControl());							//add type of map control
	myMap.addControl(new ZoomControl());							//add zoom control
	myMap.enableScrollWheelZoom();								//enable mouse scrolling
	geocoder=new ClientGeocoder();								//create geocoder
	geocoder.addEventListener(GeocodingEvent.GEOCODING_SUCCESS, handleGeocodingSuccess);	//add listeners for geocoder
	geocoder.addEventListener(GeocodingEvent.GEOCODING_FAILURE, handleGeocodingFailure);
	dirs=new Directions();									//create directions
	dirs.addEventListener(DirectionsEvent.DIRECTIONS_SUCCESS, handleDirLoad);		//add listeners for directions
	dirs.addEventListener(DirectionsEvent.DIRECTIONS_FAILURE, handleDirFail);


private function handleDirLoad(evt:DirectionsEvent):void{
	var dirs:Directions=evt.directions; 							//create directions from event
	var startM:Marker;
	var endM:Marker;
	startM = new Marker(dirs.getRoute(0).startGeocode.point, new MarkerOptions());		//create start marker from directions instance
	endM = new Marker(dirs.getRoute(0).endGeocode.point, new MarkerOptions());		//create end marker from directions instance
	myMap.clearOverlays();									//clear map
	myMap.addOverlay(dirs.createPolyline());						//draw route on map
	myMap.addOverlay(startM);								//add start marker
	myMap.addOverlay(endM);									//add end marker
	myMap.setZoom(myMap.getBoundsZoomLevel(dirs.bounds));					//set appropriate zoom
	myMap.setCenter(dirs.bounds.getCenter());						//show route

private function handleDirFail(evt:DirectionsEvent):void{					//directions failure handler"Unable to found route");

private function handleGeocodingSuccess(evt:GeocodingEvent):void{				//geocoding success handler
	var result:Placemark = GeocodingResponse(evt.response).placemarks[0];			//create result object
	myMap.setCenter(result.point, 14);							//show finding place

private function handleGeocodingFailure(evt:GeocodingEvent):void{				//geocoding failure handler"Unable to found: " +;

This is one out of many things we can do with GoogleMaps API, including e.g. adding information and photos in concrete places on the map.

    Google has decided that its users of their well-liked Google Maps service will begin becoming charged a fee for utilizing their service. Websites that are going embedding a Google Map of their location will be charged a fee for usage.This new Google Maps fee is going to hit mostly the bigger companies, particularly the Travel industry. I suspect that certain websites that are the heaviest users would be websites like TripAdvisor and Expedia.”;
