George Your Questions About Google Maps

George asks…

How to implement google maps on web application?

For example:

1. We can add our favorite places on google maps and highlight it.
2. We can edit everything we add on it.
3. Delete also.

It concerns our web programming project, any help would greatly appreciated!

admin answers:

For hard core projects that need dynamically added content the Maps API would be used:

My Maps lets you manually create a custom map, check the video

Looks like the “My Places” button now leads you to “Create your own maps to share the places that matter to you.”

Here’s a 3rd party custom map makers

Charles Your Questions About Google Maps

Charles asks…

How can I create a customizable map in Google Maps or other online mapping software?

I would like to be able to change the size of the location marker based on the number of times that an incident occurs at a given location. Is this possible within Google Maps? If not are there other resources available to accomplish this task? The parameters I am specifically looking for are no cost, no download, online services that can be shared to a select group of persons.

admin answers:

Google allows users to create KML (sort of like XML) that can be overlayed against the base Google Maps they provide. Duncan’s link is a good place to start. You should be able to find plenty of examples (most newspapers include police incident reports as a map overlayed against Google base maps) online.

Richard Your Questions About Google Calendar

Richard asks…

How do you set one calendar in Google calendars as a default?

I have a partner page with Google for my high school, Avalon School, and I want to make a calendar on my admin account, so that the schedule i put on the admin’s calendar is the default calendar schedule. Does this make sense to anyone?

admin answers:

Yes there is.

There are four types of calendars:

• Personal calendars (the default one you’re talking about)

• Public calendars (which others can access on the web)

• Friend’s calendars (imported from other people’s Google calendar webpages)

&bull & Holiday calendars (add national holidays into a basic calendar)

From the main Google Calendar page, click the + button next to My Calendars. Your first one will automatically be the default, but make sure it is set as a “personal calendar”.

Mandy Your Questions About Google Images

Mandy asks…

Google images?

I want to put a picture on google images of my horse i just made an acount so how would i put a picture on? thanks

admin answers:

Upload your image to a free image host, then submit the image url to Google. Make sure you name the file something relevant, because that’s how people will find your picture from their search.

You can’t upload a file to Google Images directly.

You can upload your photo/image to one of the following:

http://tinypic.com/

http://photobucket.com/

And then submit it to Google:

http://google.com/addurl

Laura Your Questions About Google Images

Laura asks…

How do you get google images to show images instead of white boxes?

When I search for images on google images or most other search engines, the results tend to show up as just white boxes or a broken symbol, I have google chrome and internet explorer but both just show the white boxes most of the time. please help.

admin answers:

Try
have you got the latest versions of Java and Adobe programs
if not you can install them from
.http://filehippo.com there are other sites ~cnet~major geek for example
if this is not the answer
have you got your pop up blocker on ~this can also cause this problem
it may be a problem with a temp file or a web cookie
try http://ccleaner.com
install and run it (then at least weekly)
it will clear all temp files and browser cookies left behind every time you browse the web (normal occurrence on all PC’s ~laptops)
if it does not solve the problem it will do no harm and will improve your PC performance and give you memory back.
Best i can suggest hope this helps

Susan Your Questions About Google Images

Susan asks…

How does Google images determine if a picture is for adults?

In google images, you can adjust the filter to display different levels offensive imagery (i.e. nudity, profanity, etc), but with the millions maybe billions of images online, how is it managed? Is there a google department in charge of surfing the internet to flag images? Or is it simply an algorithm of some sort?

If you’re just going to guess, how about you just don’t answer!

admin answers:

Google does have a user powered program that gets people to ‘tag’ random images for fun in their spare time. The more times an image is tagged with related keywords, the more confident Google can be that the image is what people are saying it is, and eventually those tags will be used to find that picture in the search results.

This is not the only way Google does it though. They do have computer algorithms that analyze and sort images very efficiently (it’s the only way possible, even a team of hundreds of users could never tag every image out there).

Google Images also has an option to search for images with faces. I believe this uses the same algorithm used in Google Street View to identify and blur faces. Some people comment on the fact that it’s pretty good at picking up faces even when they are not real, in one case the logo for KFC was blurred.

The algorithm for safe filtering is not perfect though… There are still things that can get through, especially if you use unusual search terms. I am studying Computer Science at University and in my opinion, the safe search option is done using a combination of algorithms and human intervention to help remove offending content that was not caught by the system automatically (as I noted earlier, this can only be done for a limited number of popular search terms though, so not everything gets filtered).

The algorithm most likely uses one of two methods (or both):
A) Identify the image as safe or not by determining whether the webpage it is hosted on is ‘safe’. This is most likely done by analyzing words on the page in a similar way to how Google indexes pages in the text search. This can’t be the only way since I know of websites that have completely unrelated text that don’t have their images show up in the ‘safe’ search.
B) Attempt to identify pornography by either measuring the ratio of skin-tone colours to non skin-tones (i.e. Try to determine how much ‘skin’ is showing) or using object recognition to identify ‘offending’ areas of the human body such as breasts or genitalia.

I should also mention that there is a report feature users can utilize to report offending images. This also helps filter out much of ‘unsafe’ images from popular search terms.

How Can I Improve My Vision Naturally.?

I have been using glasses since 5th grade. I’m tired of using glasses. I don’t want to use contacts because they are annoyinq and laser eye surgery is just too expensive. Is there ways to get my vision back to a 20/20 with out spending much money.?

admin answers:

You’ve already gone through the evidence based options.

Carrots improving vision is a myth: http://www.snopes.com/food/ingredient/carrots.asp

Eye exercises haven’t been shown to work.

Sandy Your Questions About Improve Vision Naturally

Sandy asks…

please help!!!! is there any way to improve the vision naturally?

is there anything i can do to improve my eye vision naturally?

admin answers:

No. If you wear glasses, no amount of carrots or sleep will change your need for the lenses. Carrots cannot re-shape your cornea. Corrective lenses or laser surgery are the only cures.

Donald Your Questions About Improve Vision Naturally

Donald asks…

are there ways to naturally improve your vision?

?

admin answers:

You can’t improve your vision but you can certainly slow down further deterioration with vision enhancing foods such as carrots, pumpkin, tomatoes, bilberries, blueberries, corn and others that you can find in a web search for “vision enhancing foods”.

A good supplement is Vision Defence Formula that you can find in a web search for “vision defence formula”.
