interaction between the new Google maps inside a browser and a
dedicated client app/engine see:


Click the DEMOS link then click the MAP DEMO link. Yeah, another
website designed in Flash and the demo file is 15MB, I know. But the
demo file itself is rather interesting and very cool.

Fwd: Google does it again - with maps

(Rather surprised that the list address isn't in the reply-to, but oh well...)

For kicks, I decided to "fly" west from my home in Brooklyn (start at
decent height above street level and hold down the left arrow), but by

The only thing missing was an Indiana Jones-themed airplane icon in the middle.

Was the most literal sense of distance I'd gotten from a map system
ever, however. Scale legends are requisites, but for a pure visceral
effect nothing beats time.
