    Hello

    I'm trying to put a similar interactive map on my website as the one on the Macmillan Coffee Morning website, link here: http://coffee.macmillan.org.uk/How/F...ngnearyou.aspx , where people can type in their postcode to find a hosted event near them, but also submit their own events into the system automatically from the link on the left hand side. These then show up on the map for other people to find them.
    I know that this is Google technology, but I've tried looking on the help section of Google Maps and it doesn't specify how I'd be able to do this. Please could anyone help?

    Look closer at the google map API section...

    But personally I'd seperate it out.... Use the google map API, but throw my own data at it...

    A map that interacts with your current site is going to be limited to googles data that they have on file.

    Using their map API, you can write custom scripts that will put your information on their map, if you want users to interact with it ( submit events for a particular location ), you will definitely have to host the data on your end as google doesn't allow users to submit any data.

    Seems I read something a while back where a guy was using google docs ( spreadsheet ), and was able to tie it into the google maps stuff... Been a while, but I don't think that would allow for user interaction.
