Turning down the Flash Maps API

Alert!

On September 2nd of this year the three year deprecation period for the Google Maps API for Flash will come to a close and the API will be turned off on that date. We encourage developers of existing applications to migrate to JavaScript Maps API v3 as soon as possible.

Over the past 3 years we’ve added numerous additional features to v3, such as elevation, cycling and transit directions, symbols, and support for GeoJSON, making it our most powerful and well used Maps API ever. Developers looking to migrate to the JavaScript Maps API v3 can find answers to any questions they have on StackOverflow. Our support page has the right StackOverflow tags to peruse.

Alternatively, if you are a Maps API for Business customer you can get help through the Enterprise support portal (check the Resources tab).
