Missing instruction to add the following statement: from kivy.network.urlrequest import UrlRequest

Note from the Author or Editor:
This definitely can be clarified. There's already an "IMPORT" section in the book. It should be sufficient to add a new example just before the [[get_map_data.py]]: ----------------------------------------------------------- [[get_map_import.py]] .Import UrlRequest ==== [filename="code/3-08_get_map_data/main.py", language="py", identifier="IMPORT"] snippet~~~~ snippet~~~~ ==== --------------------------------------------------------------- Also change the sentence As <<get_map_data.py>> illustrates, this is not a difficult task.(((buttons, Search button))) to This is not a difficult task. First import +UrlRequest+ as shown in <<get_map_import.py>> and request the URL as illustrated in <<get_map_data.py>>.(((buttons, Search button))) --------------------------------------------------------------- This should be sufficient, but make sure to double check the editing and formatting. :-)

Chapter 1, in The KV Language Root Widget section, bottom of page

In the following sentence, "Language" is mis-spelled: The KV Lanuage is a special domain specific language that is ideal for laying out user interfaces.

Note from the Author or Editor:
This has been fixed already.
