I finally found time to write a mashup. Actually this started out as a project for a customer and this page is just an unbranded version of the one I gave to them.
http://www.calevans.com/trackups.php is the URL. It’s really very simple. You put in a valid UPS package id and it tracks it via UPS’s API and then displays a Google map of where your package is/was.
It was fun to write. I’m still working out some kinks in version 1. Version 2, which is about 50% done is an all AJAX version. Once I get it done I’ll probably write up a quickie article on how I did it. (Like anyone with Google and half a brain can’t figure it out.)
Until next time,
