Great job, Jeroen!

How do I go about upgrading from Semantic Google Maps? My uses it a little bit.

Thank you,

First of all, let me introduce myself.
I'm Jeroen De Dauw, one of the GSoC students for Wikimedia foundation this year. During the last 2 months I've been working on 2 new mapping extensions for MediaWiki and Semantic MediaWiki [0] with Yaron Koren [1] as mentor. You can read more about this at my blog [2].

The first version of both extensions has just been released. These are the extensions:

Maps [3] is an extension that provides the ability to display coordinate data, using multiple mapping services, including Google Maps [4], OpenLayers [5] and Yahoo Maps [6], and allows users to geocode addresses.

Semantic Maps
Semantic Maps [7] is an extension that adds semantic capabilities to the Maps extension, and therefore provides the ability to add, view and edit coordinate data stored through the Semantic MediaWiki extension, using multiple mapping services. These include Google Maps, OpenLayers and Yahoo Maps. Semantic Maps and Maps are based on Semantic Google Maps and Semantic Layers, and are meant to replace these extensions. For this extension to work, you need to have both Semantic MediaWiki and Maps installed.

You can download both extensions via their documentation pages. Suggestions and feature requests are welcome.
