I like what I see here. Most of this covers areas I’m already comfortable with, such as creating a custom map, adding placemarks or lines and sharing maps.
But I appreciate White Rock’s step-by-step thoroughness, the effective use of screen grabs and the easy, tabbed interface.
I tried the Google Maps profile. Of course, I already had a limited profile, but I thought I’d better give this site a test run.
Everything made sense, although I noticed a feature that White Rock’s tutorial didn’t cover: the ability to add links to social-networking profiles such as on del.icio.us, flickr and facebook. I wonder if these were added after the tutorial was published.

I’m going to keep my eye on White Rock because Kevin promises more advanced API tutorials coming soon.
