    i'm not sure what newsgroup to ask, but i have some dynamic asp code
    that displays addresses and such from a recordset, and i want users to
    click on an icon that sits aside the dynamic address to find the
    location via yahoo maps, but I want to use this to go to Google maps.
    Here is my Yahoo example:
    http://maps.yahoo.com/py/lg:/lc:/maps_result?BFCat=&Pyt=Tmap&newFL=&addr=<%=
    rslist("address") %>&csz=<%= rslist("city") %>%2C%20<%= rslist
    ("state") %>%20<%= rslist("zip") %>&country=us

    i can't find a source that has this for Google maps.

    ??

  2. Google is just about the same, and you can actually do more server side,
    like make maps and such. Look into getting a Google API key, and then
    you can have maps, directions, etc.

    For what you want to do, you just have to do a Google map request and
    take a look at the query string, then replace that with your own
    information.
