I hope everyone can grasp the enormous complexity of the code required to add the Google Earth map type to a Google Map. You have to add this parameter to your wiki code: earth=on. Suggestions to simplify this monster down are welcome of course 🙂
A thing to remember when enabling the Google Earth map type is that the default map type will be ‘earth’, and not ‘normal’. So when you want a normal map to be displayed when the page loads, be sure to add type=normal. I’ll add a more thorough explanation of this to the extension page of Maps later on.
Now, time for some nice screenshots – admitted, they are no way near as cool as the real maps.
