LabVIEW provides an example project for interfacing with the Google Maps™
API, but now Google makes the API keys paid.
In case you have Google Map™
API Key, you can go by the following link: GMaps API
In case you don't have a Key, you can interface Google Maps™
through ActiveX control. Place an ActiveX Web Browser control on a front panel by right-clicking on a front panel >> .Net & ActiveX >> Web Browser.
On the Block Diagram, place an ActiveX Invoke Node by right-clicking on the Block Diagram >> Connectivity >> ActiveX >> Invoke Node (ActiveX).
Wire WebBrowser Control to Invoke Node (ActiveX), click on the Method and select Navigate:
Add Google Maps™
URL to the URL input of an Active X Invoke Node
And finally, place a Close Reference node by going Connectivity >> ActiveX >> Close Reference from the Block Diagram.
Additionally, you can place a while loop before closing the reference so that Google Maps™
will be able to update continuously.
