I made something. A very simple map tool, built with Backbone.js, Bootstrap and Google Maps, to implement some functionality I always wished Google Maps would offer by default, such as:

  • Jump to a specific latitude-longitude
  • What is the latitude-longitude of a location?
  • What are the coordinates of the bounding box of a given view?
  • What are the coordinates of a given address?
  • What is the address at given coordinates?
  • What is the current zoom level?

These (and a bit more) are the current features of the tool. More will come, for example:

  • Show places based on a Google Docs spreadsheet
  • Save place coordinates and address into a Google Docs spreadsheet
  • Pin selected search results, so they are not removed when doing a new search
