Why did you choose Google Maps for this project ?
Plus, this project is a collaborative/open source project, so why use a proprietary tool like Google Maps ?
You should definitely have a check to mapbox.com based on https://www.openstreetmap.org the best map engine so far.
Thanks for the links. I'll check that out sometime.
I'd appreciate a move to OpenStreetMap, too.
Would love not having to unblock Google to use this site :)
