[Sigia-l] Google Maps
> What impressed you?
That it's all done in DHTML.
That it seems to render very smoothly - on a broadband connection.
That I could ring my wife up and say, "here's a map showing how to get
from Boston to Burnham, ME", where she grew up. She knows how, of course!
That the little pop-up windows you get when clicking on the link next to
the text for a specific part of a "direction" have drop-shadows to the
main map :)
Ok, so as someone said, "very useful if you've got a computer in the
car!" I'm not sure how and where I'd use the map, but as an example of
something that looks good, seems very easy to use, and presents a
mind-boggling amount of information, I'm impressed.
