A couple of useful Google Maps hacks

March 17, 2006

I'm sure you must know about Google Maps by now. What you might not know is that they have made the back-end of the service somewhat open to the public, which basically means that clever people can futz around with the service to create their own customised services. For example:

  • Google Maps Pedometer
    I use this for making sure I'm walking the dog a sufficiently large distance and for planning new routes.
  • Interactive Underground Map
    A fandabydozy London Underground route planner that gives you the quickest route (including walking time) between any two points in That London.

Excellent stuff! In Other News, zoom right in from here for a little surprise ...
