In the last tutorial we parsed a XML file with GPS data. In this tutorial I like to show you how to display the GPS data on a map. For this part we use the Google Maps API.

Geocoding with Ruby on Rails and the Google Maps API is normally an easy task. But sometimes you have do more than simple geocoding. For real estate webpages you need additional information about state, county or suburb for a given address.
This tutorial I will show you how to build your own server-side geocoding with address information completing and usage of caching data.
