Hi all,
For those of you who haven't heard, Google now has a mapping service at
At the moment, it's for the USA only, but hopefully it willspread
internationally. The user interface is quite good, as is the mapping
accuracy (I did a test on on old address of mine - 34 Wilson Avenue,
Lynbrook, New York, if you want to try it - and it showed the correct
street corner location)
There's also an interesting article about the techniques used on the site,
with tips on getting latitude and longitude information as well, which
maycome in handy: http://jgwebber.blogspot.com/2005/02/mapping-google.html
