Session Description

In this session, we will focus on various mapping solutions leveraging the Google Maps JavaScript v3 API. We will be taking a journey from creating a simple single-location map to create a highly rich, interactive mapping solution all running natively in FileMaker. We will showcase some of the more advanced feature sets of the Google Maps API including creating a simple map, creating markers from location arrays, generating driving directions and triggering scripts in FileMaker from map interactions.
