Can it help you?

We do not know what you are doing exactly. Hav you looked at the Yahopo and Google Map apis? You can do a lot with them.

One of my co-workers built

using the webservice API that Google offers.

I, personally, haven't done much with them but, as you can see, there is quite a bit you can do with them.

If you are so inclined, I wrote two chapters for Ajax in Practice that delve into using Map APIs (along with APIs for Google and Flickr).
