Gmaps + Views: A happy hack

On Saturday night Drummy, Tony, and I went to Super Happy Dev House IX. I was a bit drunk. I bet Neil and Tony that I the "business guy" would beat them the "hackers" at hacking. My goal for the night was to integrate the gmaps module with views to allow users to create maps of any view.

I won handily:
