Creating Google Maps Mashups

Students taking this course will learn how to incorporate Google maps into their own web applications. The Google Maps API allows you to easily create mashups, which combine your own data with graphical maps. The API gives you the ability to add the "where" to your web application. Best of all, it's all free.

I never thought I would be able to say that I could be knowledgeable in ANY design program, but after the three day InDesign course with Webucator, I can actually make my job much easier and appealing (without the frustration of knowing nothing)!
