Cloudmade 'Fast Maps' with KML Overlay

Cloudmade 'Fast Maps' with KML Overlay

"Using the web maps lite API you can achieve lightening fast maps"

CloudMade's Web Maps Lite API lets you embed our maps in your website.
Using our JavaScript API you can:
  • Take advantage of the most up-to-date source of map data on the web
  • Benefit from the rich OpenStreetMap dataset, with features such as footpaths and cycle paths that are not found on other online maps
  • Be free from restrictive licensing - use our maps for routing, real time tracking and as a basemap to derive new layers.
Now you can overlay your KML on these fast maps with very little programming or issues.

Fast Maps for Mobile and Web Mapping Applications - With KML Overlay

Note: Web Maps Lite is available is now out of developer pre-Alpha

Google Maps API does not current have the superfast maps (Google Maps API v3 'in labs')
with the KML Overlay option, so this is currently Mapperz recommended route for fast mapping (with mobile applications) and overlaying your own data.

Glad you like the KML integration. BTW - Web Maps Lite is not a pre-Alpha. Its a fully released product available for anyone to use.

There's a 'cookbook' area of the Web Maps Lite wiki for building a list of little examples. I've referenced your KML example there.
