EarthPOI: Google Maps, Ajax, Prototype and Prototype Window Class

Category: Mapping, Showcase

Ana Henneberke has announced a beta application called EarthPOI that mashes up Google Maps with custom Ajax code using Prototype and the Prototype Window Class.

EarthPOI is a community of people that share Points of Interest (POIs). It’s all about discovering earth and its most interesting places. This is a little like bringing Google Earth meta data to Google Maps.
