In order to celebrate the 800,000 active users of the Google Maps API, Google has launched a showcase website for their product.

The website, named "More Than A Map", features the capabilities of the API and displays various demos to show its power.

More Than A Map

It is possible to find demos of the standard maps to satellite views, usage of the "places", routing and more. The source of the demos is also a good way of finding out their usage.

Also, under the "Developer Stories" menu, selected real-world implementations of the API can be found for inspiration.
