Customizing Google Maps Continued

I have just completed the 'Build an interactive website' section and would like to firstly thank Andrew Chalkley for taking his time to create these videos.

In regards to the google map API section I would like to see perhaps this section continued slightly as I would like to see how I could customise the google map itself as well as markers.

If you get a chance to read this Andrew would you consider making a workshop video on how to do so? Or perhaps could a user point me in the direction of learning how to do so?

I would suggest checking out the Google Maps API. It has a lot of info you can toy around with.

Here is a cool tool to use to add custom styling to your map! Google Maps Custom Styling

Also, Derrick Mull is right, you should check out the Google docs. There is a lot of good info in there about customizing your map.

Hey James, check this out: https://mapping.withgoogle.com/course

Google Staff will teach you Google Maps & Goole Earth, after that you'll be certificated, inspiring?

Register it and it starts on June. 10th maybe

Good Luck,
