New Events Calendar feature
« on: April 01, 2007, 05:51:13 AM »
Just added yesterday, there is a new feature to the Events Calendar that should add to the convenience of the calendar. You will now not have to open a new window to see a map of the event's location. Thanks to a Google Maps service, you can now see the map directly on the event's page.

Unfortunately, Google does not currently offer the ability to obtain directions through this service yet. By the end of the day today, there should be a link added below the map to get directions. However, as of now, if you just want to see where the event is located, you can do so right on the event's page. You can also have many of the features of Google Maps that you would expect to find on the Google website, including the ability to view a satellite image of the location, to move the map around, and to zoom in and out.

More will be added to this feature in the future, primarily the opportunity for people adding events to preview their maps before submitting their events. I'll be sure to let everyone know when these features are added.
