Google Maps


I don't think I'll ever use mybc or mapquest ever again.

Google Maps just went online and boy is it amazing.

You can drag the map, do multiple way points, do local searches (where they tie in the Google Local database with your current mapview), dynamic drop shadows... sliding zoom bars, the list goes on... some real amazing stuff. I'm guessing they're using the XMLHttp ojbect simliar to how Google Suggest works and sending clicks and keystrokes on the fly.

Wow, Google never ceases to amaze.

Added Feb 9, 2005 - I just found a fairly good dissection of the system.
