Following the success of our GTA San Andreas interactive map, we decided to make one for Grand Theft Auto IV using Google's API. We are releasing it a bit later than expected (all the materials/screenshots/videos etc. were collected last May) but hey, better late than never!

Here is a quick summary of the main features of the map:
  • All health, armour and weapon pickup locations.
  • Flying rat/pigeon locations (200 in total) with high resolution screenshots of each location.
  • All stunt jump locations (50 in total) including videos in HD quality which demonstrate each jump.
  • Locations and screenshots of all window cleaning platforms, all of Stevie's text message car thefts, and all of the random character encounters.
  • Ability to mark a point on the map and then link to that point, so you can highlight specific locations to your friends/on forums etc.
All the co-ordinates were extracted directly from the game, so they are 100% accurate. Enjoy.

Yeah, shows accurate locations (unlike other interactive maps I've seen). Thanks! Now I can finally finish off those damn flying rats in GTA IV..

Awesome, IVM (aka SAM tounge.gif) has born! In my opinion, that map is awesome, though SAM seems to have more features...

Yeah, unfortunately "IVM" doesn't roll off the tongue in quite the same way. tounge.gif We'll probably add more stuff as soon as we figure out how to grab the coords (for things like interiors, gang cars etc.)

Awesome work, that's going to come in so handy! ph34r.gif

Would it be possible to add a link to view the map "full screen", ie: have just the map take up the browser window?

F*cking brilliant! This is exactly what I needed. Those in-game maps weren't very clear.

Good job, as always. smile.gif

Very cool. Someone made one of these for Fallout 3 that you can download and open with any browser.

I hate maps... you would have to keep using ALT+TAB to keep checking the location you need which kinda makes the map pointless... what needed to be done is a printer friendly map's, instead of these solid black and gray with green dots. ph34r.gif *i was never here*

Awesome!!

Technically speaking, this map is excellently done! Great Job!
I love all the details: filters, fullscreen, mousewheel zoom and all!
