U.S. government agencies may be tossing down nearly a million dollars each to include the premier version of Google Maps on their sites. The payments aren't going directly to Google, but an Ohio service provider Onix Networking. Onix lists several options on Apps.gov, a marketplace for technology services and applications.
Google will host a series of developer meetups focused on the Google Maps API in Boulder, Chicago and New York this June. Each event will focus on real-life use cases of the API.
