[erlang-questions] Erlang API for GoogleMap?

Google provides geocoding REST API:
http://code.google.com/intl/pl/apis/maps/documentation/geocoding/

which can be used ONLY for doing geocoding of data which will be shown
on public web sites, which are using Google Maps Javascript API for
visualizing results of geocoding. Hence you can't use it for geocoding
something for internal use. It has to be related to public web site
with Google maps displayed on them.

Requests are pretty simple:

http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=1600+Amphitheatre+Parkway,+Mountain+View,+CA&sensor=true_or_false

and returns simple JSON

Best,

P.S. We are close to finishing a geocoding server which is capable of
handling very flexible unstructured queries at the moment. It may be
open-sourced in future :)
