Update to GMaps Annotation User Script

Update to GMaps Annotation User Script

I’ve updated the user script described here and here.

The old user script has ceased to work (and may have delivered you here). The old script used “script injection”, which is now old fashioned with Greasemonkey providing xmlhttp requests to any domain.

It still doesn’t work perfectly .. for some reason the map does not recenter and zoom to the location specified in the points file. It could be some change in the XML format, or the gmaps javascript. No time to track this down now, and I know this kind of thing will continue to plague gmaps hacks. If you’re inspired and figure out the problem, I’m happy to hear about it and update the script.

Yea, I have a problem with allowing old projects to die.

Special thanks to “Some Guy” for motivating me 😉
