Spying on the competition – Google Maps

A couple of days ago I counted the number of places I’ve lived at during the last 5 years. The result: 7. Following the rule: “Blog if you have something to say, write a map mashup if you want to point out some locations”, I did the latter. As Google Maps offers satellite data from all over the world and half of the locations are in Germany, I finally found a reason to add the Maps to my Web site. Besides that it was a great to see what the competition offers. It was fun to write a few lines for it and the documentation made it really easy to get something together quicky. Check out the result! In this post Jeffrey compares the Google and Yahoo! Maps API.
