Google Maps API updated to support Driving Directions
Google Maps API has been updated to support Driving Directions. This quote from the Google Maps API blog:
You can request directions between a pair of points or a longer sequence of points.
You can request results in multiple languages. We support most major languages including English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, and more.
You can fine-tune responses for your application by choosing to request only the directions text or the polyline for the route.
The API is available for directions in the US, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Australia. More countries will be added as Google Maps launches in new countries.
Unfortunately, you can't route from New York to Paris. But perhaps you can make a mashup that gives a better suggestion than "Swim across the Atlantic Ocean."
