Thanks to Google Alerts and Twitter search, I'm always finding articles and blog posts written by developers about using our various Maps APIs. On the assumption that not all developers are constantly monitoring the internet for occurences of "google maps api", I've made it easy for you to benefit from these articles as well by linking to them from the documentation.

On the articles page for the JavaScript API, you'll find externally hosted articles on topics like Using JQuery with the Maps API, Density Mapping with the HeatMapAPI, and Handling Large Amounts of Markers.

On the articles page for the Flash API, you'll find articles on topics like Thematic Mapping, Creating Custom Maps, and Using the API with Multi-Touch Technology.

Check out the articles pages for the full list, and let us know if you have an article that should be on the lists.
