The things that people are doing with Google Maps are just amazing. This site takes housing listings from the infamous craigslist and uses them to annotate a Google Map. Just amazing. I’d really like to know how they do that.
And lots of people have been using Google Maps to snag satellite photos of their hometowns, upload them to Flickr and then annotate them. I’d actually enjoy doing that with everywhere I have lived to date: Knoxville, Nashville, and Ithaca. When I checked for Ithaca the other day, though, the satellite imagery was really lousy. Also, it appears to work better for people who live in compact urban areas (like when I lived in Nashville) rather than suburbs or small towns.
Update: The satellite imagery for the Vanderbilt area of Nashville is really crummy, too. I can start with Knoxville, though.
