With the release of API's for Google Maps and Yahoo Maps, non-developers might be start thinking that there is nothing new in the world of online maps to talk about. WRONG. Greg Linden has an overview on his blog about the new online maps from A9.com.
I've only had a short time to use A9 Maps but will try to spend more time using the service over the weekend. However, after just using A9 Maps for a few minutes, I have to agree with Greg, they've has done an impressive job of integrating the maps with the "block view" imagery they began offering in January as part of their visual yellow pages service.
and speaking of the A9 Visual Yellow Pages...
I've also noticed that A9 has added "block view" imagery for several more cities.
Here's a list of the new locations:
- Austin, TX
- San Diego
- San Jose (previously listed with San Francisco/Bay Area)
