About the course

Whether you need directions or just need to find a location, it’s pretty hard to escape Google Maps on a day-to-day basis. Instead of just using Maps to get from A-B, Robert Dickerson will guide you through the Google Maps API, while you build a live tracking interactive map. Getting you from A to Z in no time.

If you have HTML, CSS and basic JavaScript under your belt, then this course is ideal. Zoom into a live example of the project you’ll get to build: http://learnaboutmaps.com/.
