Flash Google maps to embed

Featured Image

Long time ago when Google released Google Maps API for Flash, i created small flash which i embedded on multiple sites. I thought it looks nicer that usual javascript version, maybe you will too.


Embed example:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="gmap.swf" width="620" height="400">
	<param name="movie" value="gmap.swf" />
	<param name="flashvars" 
value="key=google-key-here&lat=45.557589&lng=18.691403&zoom=15&text=<b>Inchoo d.o.o.<br />Lorem ipsum sit amet .." />

key= Google maps api key
lat= latitude
lng= longitude
zoom= zoom amount
text= html text displayed on marker click


I’m currently looking for source code for this on my old hard drive and i’ll update this post with flex source code as soon as i find it 😉
