Aussie Maps! Kiwi Maps! Beauty Mate!

Friday, May 26, 2006 at 2:44:00 PM

G'day, and welcome to an exciting new world of proper online maps for Australia and New Zealand, which we added in the nick of time for our Open House event at the Google Sydney office. Google Maps doesn't yet support full address search or business search in Australia or New Zealand, but we wanted to give API developers a head start on building cool AU/NZ mashups. The Aussie and Kiwi maps are automatically available to anyone who uses v2 of the API, so please upgrade if you're still using v1.

If you see any bugs in the new maps, please let us know via the discussion forum or our feedback form.

In other news, we've released revision 2.52 of API v2. The changes in the current revision should not affect the API.

API v1 Current: 1.31
API v1 Default: 1.31
API v2 Current: 2.52
API v2 Default: 2.51
