Google Deprecates Google Maps API for Flash

Well, I guess the decision that was made at ECU to use the JavaScript API, not the Flash API for Google Maps was ultimately the correct one.  According to the Google Geo Developers Blog, the Flash API deprecation announcement has been made.  At the time, the Flash API was not chosen due to lack of experience with ActionScript, plus the benefits of using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for maps development.  Many advanced Google Maps I’ve seen have used the Flash API, so it will be interesting to see if the projects are converted to the JavaScript API, if they will be considered feature complete and not updated (Google will make bug fixes, but not add new features to the Flash API), or if work will continue with the knowledge that Google won’t add new features to the Flash API.
