Dear Experts,

I have a table holding spatial data in SQL 2008.  I would like to be able to plot this data onto a google map.  The data is returned via a recordset using classic ASP.

Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Thanks

When you say "spatial data" do you mean Lat/Long coordinates?

If you don't want anything fancy, just a static Google Map (without zoom etc.) then just use this URL to embed it:

http://maps.google.com/maps/api/staticmap?center=Brooklyn+Bridge,New+York,NY&zoom=14&size=512x512&maptype=roadmap
&markers=color:blue%7Clabel:A%7C40.702147,-74.015794&markers=color:green%7Clabel:B%7C40.711614,-74.012318
&markers=color:red%7Ccolor:red%7Clabel:C%7C40.718217,-73.998284&sensor=false

The above example is centered on the brooklyn bridge with three different color markers. Add as many markers as you want with the URL Param 'marker' like so:

&markers=color:blue%7Clabel:A%7C40.702147,-74.015794
