Description 

Author

This class can get driving directions using Google Maps API.

It takes the addresses of two locations and sends a HTTP request to Google Maps API to retrieve driving directions to go from one location to the other.

The class may also retrieve the driving directions drawn in an image of the map that includes both locations.

The map image is stored in a given file in either JPEG or PNG formats. The scale level of the map is also configurable.
