Peter Batty from Ubisense updates tells us about how their product, "myWorld" is using Google Maps API Premier to make sense of complicated GIS data. "myWorld is a Software as a Service (SaaS) product that brings the ease of use and performance of Google Maps to the challenge of presenting these complex network maps in a way which's simple to use. myWorld uses Google Maps JavaScript API V3 with Google Maps API Premier."

"One cool feature of the app is its tight integration with Street View. You can click on an object on the map, such as a pole or a building, and see a Street View of that object. This gives the user additional info that they can't get from their existing GIS database. We calculate the right bearing for Street View automatically, and this works surprisingly well, given the potential for mismatches between the Street View and GIS location data. When necessary, the user can adjust and save the view, over-riding the automatic view. We can display markers in the Street View and click on them to display attributes of poles or other characteristics - this's a great feature of the V3 API," explains Peter.
