From Mapping in the Cloud by Michael Peterson
All Google Maps API examples here use a key that is assigned to a specific server. If the Google Map examples below don't work once you upload them to your server, you will need to get your own key from Google. As of July 2018, the Google key requires that you enter a credit card. The first $200 of usage is free. This equates to about 28,000 maps a month, more than most developers would need.
14_02_Flow_Map - Map out data on the number of people that fly between three different airports. Data can be found through this List of busiest passenger air routes. Make the thinnest line 2 pixels and the thickest 20 pixels wide . Include the calculated widths of the lines below the map.
14_06a_Mapping_lines_from_KML_file.htm - Change the coordinates for the line in the kml_lines.kml file. Change the address of the kml_lines.kml file so that it points to your directory. It should not point to the maps.unomaha.edu server.
14_06b_Mapping_flight_track_great_circle.htm - Map out a flight track between two cities and the corresponding great circle route.
14_08c_Mapping_flight line from a geoJSON file - Upload the data from 14.06b to http://geojson.io using Open/File. Download (Save) as geoJSON. Link to this file. May not display in Dreamweaver.
14_09_Line_Input - Change the center, line width and line color of the line that is drawn.
14_11_Polyline_Encoding.htm - Encode a line segment and map the line by copying and pasting the encoded polyline into the following code: 14_11a_Display_Encoded_Polyline.htm
