Add A9 images on Googlemaps!

A9Gmaps0 This is one of my new favorite google map hacks – Why not take A9 Local images and insert them into Google Maps search results? (A9 Local images are storefront snapshots – taken by Amazon’s A9.com – of 15 major US Cities) How does it work? Greasemonkey lets me inject script into any page (viewed in Firefox), and the script I injected is set up to fetch an Address Search from A9.com, looking for a corresponding image. If an image is found, it’s displayed in the “Info Balloon” on Google Maps Link.

  1. Does anyone know if there’s an A9 block view API? These people display the a9 block view images in google map marker pop-ups:

    I’m trying to do the same thing and was wondering if anyone had any code for it.

    btw, I think the alkemis site is the former nysee.net site.
