Interactive Google Maps Component
https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153537&ref=Feed
<p>This application is a simple demonstration of Maple 18's new HTTP package for communicating with web-based APIs. It has a component-based interface that lets you interact with Google Maps. Simply enter a latitude and longitude, and set your zoom level and desired map type. Maple will then:</p>
<ul>
<li>download map images using the Google Maps API, </li>
<li>and then place those images on a label component</li>
</ul>
<p>The code for the application is located in the Startup code region (Edit > Startup Code).</p>
<p>The Google Maps API limits the number of anonymous queries you can make per day. If you exceed their limit, you'll need to include a Google Maps API key in the startup code.</p>
<p>The default latitude and longitude point to the location of the Maplesoft office in Waterloo, Ontario.</p><img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=153537/googlemaps.jpg" alt="Interactive Google Maps Component" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/><p>This application is a simple demonstration of Maple 18's new HTTP package for communicating with web-based APIs.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=4361&ref=Feed
This Maple application computes the perimeter of a tract of land based on the latitude and longitude measurements marking its corners. The distance formula used comes from http://jan.ucc.nau.edu/~cvm/latlongdist.html This formula is not a Great Circle Distance Formula. However, the Great Circle Distance for points as close together as those in a tract of farm land will not differ appreciably from the straight line formula. There is probably more error due to the topography of the terrain.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=4361//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Property Surveying" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>This Maple application computes the perimeter of a tract of land based on the latitude and longitude measurements marking its corners.

A simple procedure to calculate the metric coefficients of a surface parametrized by theta and phi (since we will be dealing with the sphere) is presented here. A small bit of area on a surface is approximated by the parallelogram spanned by tangent vectors. Finally, a procedure is included to calculate the Gauss curvature of a surface directly from metric coefficients<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=3592//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Mathematics of map projections" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>A simple procedure to calculate the metric coefficients of a surface parametrized by theta and phi (since we will be dealing with the sphere) is presented here.
