tutorial - Converting a Maps API Mashup into a Mapplet

Here's a very handy document for mashup developers. The doc from Pamela Fox of Geo API Team describes in details exactly how to create a mapplet. From the tutorial... Google Mapplets allow developers to create Google Gadgets that can be loaded by Google Maps users onto the main "shared" map along with other Mapplets, enabling the Google Maps user to easily create "mashups of mashups". They're a great way to reach a large audience of users, so most maps developers should consider creating Mapplet versions of their Maps API mashups. With this conversion guide, you should be able to convert your Maps API site into a Mapplet (in 60 minutes or less!).  Grab the doc at
