FBS Completes Google Maps API v3 Upgrade

First Base Solutions upgrades online mapping tools 

Markham, ON, Monday, November 25, 2013 – Google Maps API is the world’s most popular mapping application, used on over a million websites to date, including MapWarehouse and VuMAP, First Base Solutions’ online access points to our library of orthophoto and spatial data.  

 Google Maps API v2 is no longer supported and has ceased to function altogether as of November 19, 2013. The new Google Maps Javascript API has been implemented on both MapWarehouse and VuMAP, to provide our customers with a better user experience including:
  • Faster loading times
  • Improved performance for polygon and marker overlays
  • Support for new browsers including mobile through HTML 5

For those still using Google Maps API v2 on your own website who may be looking to quickly implement the upgrade to v3, FBS is qualified to perform the code migration for you, or, train and support your developers along the way.
