    so people are making new hacks every day, taking the google maps and meshing it with some data to turn out something cool.

    anyone wanna help me with a little project ive been trying to get together, basically i want a way to have ppl enter their address, it gets put into a data base, and then have google maps display everyone in the database, a lil help?

    I think there's already a site that allows you to do this. There was an OT one. I don't remember the name or URL of the site though.

    Just go download the google maps API and read the documentation. They even give you an example and show how to do it. Of course, you'll have to be able to adapt that to extract the info from a DB, but there's plenty of info on that elsewhere on the web.
