How Pilotbean use Google Maps?
At Pilotbean, we use the Google Maps API to display maps based on a users search. This allows us to display information which directly correlates to the users location.
We used Google Maps on the Which?Local project to highlight on a map businesses which were in a specific distance from the users location.
