comment What are some options for embedding Google Maps into a WordPress site?
A simpler option may be to design a stand-alone map using HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and upload it somewhere. Then simply embed it into a WordPress Page using an iFrame. Any reasons why this would be a bad idea?

I'm experimenting with google-maps-v3-shortcode/ and it seems pretty good. It lacks some of my "wish list" items but does allow easy marker updating via a Fusion Tables document, which my user could easily accomplish

Looks promising, thanks. This brings the points across but not the heatmap, though. Toggling the heatmap option on/off doesn't change any of the properties of the network link's URL. Any clues? I'll also try the fusion tables user forum.

All of the suggestions below are great, and I'll give them a chance when I can - like I said this is just a fun project on the side...

comment Uninstalled Chrome now arctoolbox won't work
Fair enough. Re: the educational version, I believe this is simply the standard ArcGIS install with a different license arrangement (ie, it's a legal/marketing difference rather than an actual technical difference) so it is possible to uninstall and reinstall, provided you still have the original DVD and license codes

Not that this helps, but I'm just curious as to why you're so determined not to have Chrome on your computer. It's a great browser...

comment How to avoid Google map geocode limit?
@rob FWIW I think Ragi has the right approach. Casey's answer still requires that you geocode every point, every time the map draws, which doesn't appear to be necessary for your static dataset

comment Is it possible to add photo-realistic clouds in ArcGlobe animations?
@Jakub very nice. I once saw a 3D demo which had moving water, trees swaying randomly in the wind, etc. Definitely not ArcGlobe though!
