    Map a Route in Google Maps?

    AllegroDataSolutions

      Has anybody tried plotting a route in Google Maps, using the web browser control?

       

      I have a client who has been finding a set of records in his old (non-FileMaker) database, exporting them to an Excel file (CSV), then importing it into MS Streets & Trips (in Windows) and generating a route from his location to all his customers. Streets and Trips highlights the route and shows a pin icon with the address and client name at each point along the route.

       

      At worst, I can have FileMaker do the export the address list, so he can continue using Streets and Trips, but it would be a lot more impressive if I could feed it to Google Maps as a URL. I just don't know if Google supports it and, if so, what the parameters and syntax would have to be. My guess is that it would have to feed into the Directions feature.

       

      Thanks.
