Google 3D Maps API For Flash

Posted by Sravan | August 5, 2009 .

Google recently announced support for 3D perspectives in the Google Maps API for Flash. SWFs using Google Maps with 3D features can be created using Flash 9/10, though Flash Player 10 has additional improvements in 3D animations that makes it easier to create.

The 3D perspective can be introduced to an existing SWF by simply importing the com.google.maps.Map3D, com.google.maps.View, and com.google.maps.geom.Attitude classes; extending a Map3D object instead of a Map object; and allowing a map view to be set to VIEWMODE_PERSPECTIVE.

Get Adobe Flash player

In addition, setting the attitude of a map (defined by the three parameters roll, pitch and yaw) can be used to specify the angles of incidence for the map from a viewer’s perspective.

Refer to the 3D Maps specification of the API for more customized options like keyboard controls, switching between map view modes, translating your coordinate axes, and check out the demo gallery along with their source for a little ignition.

By this time next week, I hope to see some cool Flash apps, even AIR apps exploiting this new development.
