Easier map editing, dynamic filters

As we try to continue to improve our service, we try to fix bugs and add new features in a timely manner.  Unfortunately it was a few months since we got to some great updates and fixes.

Some of the bug fixes include map editing.  Now all the data from the modified spreadsheet can be pasted and the original geo-coded address will automatically map to addresses that have not changed.  This is a great feature to geo-code 250 items at a time and add up to 2,500 item to the map per day.  There were also issues with removing pins from the map and always generating the KML.  Now KML is optional.  In addition there is an option to allow the mouse wheel to resize the map.

The filters, which can be set on the advanced maps, have been modified to be dynamic and the available filters should change based on the available data as other filters are selected.  This will allow filters to behave similar to filters in excel (all on your own custom google map).

Finally, some information pages have been built to help explain some of the features included in our service.  We have some great things planned including easier map management, tutorials, a FAQ, and more great support to map your data easier.
