comment Is it possible to gray out a Google Maps map except for some area?
It comes down to making a Polygon in KML with an outerBoundaryIs, being the world and an innerBoundaryIs, being your area of interest. Apart from having difficulty styling the transparancy i keep getting holes in my semi-transparent layer when i zoom in. Anyone have any experience with that?

Is the use of Google Fusion Tables a must in this example? I'm not using that at the moment. I will download the github code and check what the requirements are.

This does indeed display the functionality i am looking for! I will have to dive into the source to see if it is easily implementable in my case. They are talking about hacks (i immediately get IE7 fears).

comment Find all of the ways that intersect a linestring
I find it a bit weird to use ST_DWithin for your needs. Do you check on distance = 0?

comment How does pgRouting shortest_path work?
This is indeed an answer to the title. Somehow i have a feeling that he kind of knows how it works but doesn't understand why it doesn't technically work for him.

Do you have a tool like QGIS? If so, load your network with that and put the layer in Edit mode. That way you see all verices and you can probably spot missing vertices. Otherwise select vertices that are only 1 time a source or target and make them visible to see where they lie. Dead ends are ok, but somewhere inside your network is probably wrong.

comment How does pgRouting shortest_path work?
Start with a very simple case. The simplest test would be to route from a source to target on the same edge. If that doesn't work you might not have to correct columns. If it works test a target that is on a connecting edge. If that doesn't work your edges might not be correctedly conected, etc.

comment Generating very simple slippy map tiles
The documentation of Mapnik says that with the option -s (slim) it should run on the amount of memory you give it. However in my experience i still get out of memory exceptions with 8GB and/or it operates so slow that i fear it isn't doing anything useful anymore.

comment Generating very simple slippy map tiles
To what depth are you going to generate the tiles? If you go to zoom level 18 or beyond for the entire planet you might run out of file handles. I ran into this problem for a much smaller area than the entire planet. On zoom level 18 we are already talking about 68.719.476.736 tiles and thus files (unless you are planning to generate them on the fly).

revised Using a list of geographic locations, and determining the X closest locations to a user-defined location
Question isnt really about (the tags) google-maps or mx-excel. It seems to be about finding a proper GIS tool and shortest path algorithms

comment How to route over (partial) edges in pgrouting?
I add the temporary nodes into the sql query that does the shortest path with a join.

Yes, sorry it was newyear night and i drank a lot of champagne. I could have been a little bit more elaborate.
