How to Create Custom Google Maps?
There's a site that I visit weekly in football season which shows the geographical TV coverage of each NFL game. Example:

Nov 16 CBS Early Game

From the appearance of the map, it appears to be a user-modified Google map. The owner of 506 is apparently able to overlay colors by zip or some other geographic field.

I have long wanted to be able to display certain data on a map, but I don't have a budget for proprietary software and am not a good programmer (although some coworkers are).

Does anyone know how to go about creating custom Google maps, what the requirements are, or what capabilities they have? Or is this completely off base?

1. The site you posted...
was created with shape2earth's software.

This can be done by hand, but it is a very tedious task. I believe there is a tutorial under maps.google.com that explains how to incorporate/process XAML overlays.
