Smart Maps: Search+Maps at Yahoo

By - March 09, 2004

Yahoo’s integrated location/place search into a visual map interface at maps.yahoo.com. It’s intuitive and cool. The image at left shows my neighborhood – local restaurants are highlighted on the Yahoo application, but not emdedded in the .gif, unfortunately.

(Thanks, Beal.)

    Too bad that’s just for US and Canada, much like what Google has to offer. I’m from Germany and would prefer a global scope with these services.
