Building a Google Maps application? I had to do just the same thing when I put together ROKKYUU Magazine's reviews section.

Building a Google Maps application? I had to do just the same thing when I put together ROKKYUU Magazine‘s reviews section,¬†which enabled subscribers to locate articles geographically by browsing through a single Google Map.

Here are the fruits of my hard-earned labor: a complete list of all the geocoordinates for the 50 states and each Japanese prefecture.

I sat for a couple hours and determined the best zoom level for each state/prefecture (that’s the number in curly braces) after determining the optimal geocoordinates using this wonderful location to geocoordinate tool from LivePhysics.com.

    And as someone who is working with WordPress and Google Maps right now – I’ll go ahead and thank you. I’m working on a travel photoblog at FavTrip.com and working to keep up, so ‘tutorials’ like this really save my butt.

    Great stuff, great site, glad I found ya.
