Hi there,

firstly I hope I've come to the right section....!?

I'm trying to gather as much info as I can on mapping services.

Google Maps are a great example http://maps.google.co.uk/ , though ultimately i'm looking for something that would work to search for properties to rent in England..

Do you know of any mapping & local interest data suppliers who will offer a white label service (i.e. so you can re-brand without referring to the underlying supplier) for integration into your own site?

thanks in advance for anything you can offer,

elliot

I can't imagine how much money google spends on their maps. And they're the ones who like giving stuff out for free, and they don't do it. I doubt there are any like that.

Google does have ways to integrate it into pages, though, but I am not sure how.

I've seen scavenger hunts, a site that maps garbage items that might be of use in New York by address (like old chairs and such), and random other things.

However, I have no idea how to use it or how easy/allowed it is.

Hi djr33,

I'm going to go off and have a read through all the t's & c's of Googles service and take it from there I think.

thanks for your reply...

Sure.

I think it must be legal, but I'm just not sure how accessible it is. complex, surely.


Good luck... report back if it works out well :)
