ClassyGMaps

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

In the time honoured tradition, of kinda resurrecting closed down Google products, heres another..

ClassyGMaps

Its the start of an attempt to recreate Classic Google Maps. But not far beyond a prototype yet.

It can already display KML files, split screen streetview, and 45-degree aerial imagery,┬áthree things lost in ‘New Maps’.

Its on GitHub:
https://github.com/barryhunter/classygmaps/

and has its own issue tracker:
https://github.com/barryhunter/classygmaps/issues

If want it to develop, post your requests!

Update: Added two new map types, a live emulation of UK road colour scheme (works worldwide!), and access to legacy map tiles, from before Google changed the colour scheme. I dont think the tiles will be updated to include new roads etc, but might be interesting to get a decent colour scheme.
