even broader audience by taking the complexity out of integrating Google

Dreamweaver, makes it possible for database-driven and manually entered

standard street addresses (both US and international format) as well as
coordinates (longitude and latitude). Multiple points can be mapped in
either or both formats.

addresses or coordinates one at a time or bind them from database-driven
content. Manual and database entries can be mixed in the same map.
* Driving directions options: Include driving directions to your default
destination with the click of a checkbox. The starting location can be
manually entered, incorporated from a database or entered from a Web page
* Full map controls made optional: Users can choose from two different pan
and zoom configurations, map type (map, satellite, hybrid), inset and more.

congested in over 30 major US metropolitan areas with color-coded overlays.

address markers: Google traditional/flat, Google traditional/pillow, flag,
pin, push pin and star, all in 11 different color schemes. Individual
markers can be assigned to different addresses or address recordsets.
