Google have updated their Flash API for maps to add 3D perspective maps. I stumbled upon their Geo developers blog which has a post on it here. Obviously I’m a little behind the times on this API as when I downloaded the SWCs they were now up to version 1_16 and my old ones were 1_8. I tried updating a simple test app I had to use the new map format and it was pretty quick and easy so if you’ve been playing with maps, give it a go.
I’ll be keeping an eye on that blog every so often to make sure I don’t miss out on anything else cool they might come up with!
