Fab Friday is Custom Made

Another week down, and time for another Fab Friday.


First up this week, I’ve got a video for you. Don’t I always have a video for you? The inimitable Brett Morgan filmed another Maps Shortcut episode, Custom Info Windows in the Google Maps SDK for iOS. Check it out:




Next I have a map for you. August 1st was Swiss National Day, and to celebrate, we have a timeline of when the cantons joined the Confederation.


This timeline is brought to us by Vasile Cotovanu, who also created the Swiss Cantons mercator puzzle, and more. And as usual, all his code is over on Github.


Finally, for you do-gooders, there’s a great event coming up. Apply now for the 2013 Geo for Good User Summit:


Calling all mapping specialists who use their powers for environmental and social good! Apply now for this annual hands-on technical workshop hosted by the Google Earth Outreach team from Nov 12-15 at the Google headquarters in Mountain View, CA: http://geoforgood2013.earthoutreach.org


That’s all for this week. Have a great weekend, and happy mapping!
