  1. Two questions: What was that site you showed me to create 3-D buildings within Google Maps?
    Plus, is there a way to combine those 3-D features with Wikitude?

    Google Building Maker:

    As far as I know, there is not a 3-D layer in Wikitude. Yet.

    You told me last week to remind you I won’t be in class tomorrow.

    I’m leaving for Florida for Thanksgiving in the morning.

    Technically, I told you last week to drop me an e-mail ASAP. I need you to e-mail me your final project proposal by the start of class tomorrow.

    Is there a way to create a frame for a map like Foursquare does?
    It would be cool to have something similar, only bigger, on a webpage.

  6. Nick Orichuia says:

    P.S. Is there any way to find out when a Google Maps picture was taken?

  7. sinker says:

    As to your first question, of course! You can embed any map (via MyMaps or just a straight Google Map) by clicking on the “link” button in the upper right hand corner and then choosing the code in “Paste HTML to embed in website.” You’ll notice that the start of that code defines a size in pixels. Adjust that as you see fit.

    If you’re looking for something even easier than that (though, let’s face it, that’s pretty easy), based on a single address point, you can use the maps feature built into Google Web Elements:

    As to your second question, are you talking about Street View? I’m pretty sure they don’t release date info on those images.

    What about including EveryBlock updates on a website… is it possible?
