My wife and I play around with various ideas of taking advantage of the growing feature set of maps.google.com.

Are there features within GWT to facilitate access to the Maps API?

There is no widget provided directly in GWT, but there is a fantastic 3rd party widget that you can use that provides access to all the Google Map API to GWT.

I think the chap that wrote the widget also has this site - http://www.gtraffic.info/ - (apologies to him if not!!) which shows the widget in action.

You can find the widget here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gwt/
and some instructions here: http://groups.google.com/group/Google-Web-Toolkit/browse_thread/thread/7130539c37e8114/c7ae9a289867a66f?lnk=gst&q=Google+Maps+GWT+API

Good luck with it - I've played with it quite a bit and it's very useful!!

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
