Vector Overlays for Google Maps : http://vgmap.eyebeamresearch.org/ allows mapping geeks to add (Flash) vector-drawing capability (ie. overlay data like in this simple example application ) on top of Google Maps (which already enables point and line data on their maps in the form of markers, and polylines). The hope is that VGMap will help to provide baseline technology for building open, web-based GIS applications using Google Maps as the base layer.
