Exhibit/Simple Map View
Dan Lange has provided a Map view extension that does not require the Simile Painter Service.
"I've made some changes to the map extension to remove the dependency on the marker servlet. In the process I also removed quite a bit of code that no longer applies. For my own purposes, I've moved this code to a new file I call simplemap-view.js. The functionality of rendering text onto an icon is now accomplished using LabeledMarker which is part of the gmaps-utility-library (http://code.google.com/p/gmaps-utility-library/). For my project this extension renders my map about five seconds faster than the original map extension. Not to mention I no longer need to make an external http call. I also added the terrain map to the list of maps a user may choose from. "
