Gmaps 101 has posted the first part of a three-part series on the Google Maps API, specifically on version 2. The first part is an introduction which thankfully doesn’t appear to assume too much prior knowledge; parts two and three will go into further detail and AJAX and geocoding, respectively. Via Anything Geospatial.

See previous entries: Coding the Google Maps API; Google Maps Hacking Roundup.

Update, May 1: Part two is now up (via Anything Geospatial).
