Google Maps + More

February 9th, 2005 | Filed under: Design, Mapping | 2 Comments »

There’s been a lot of hoopla surrounding the beta launch of Google Maps, but don’t discount some other web based maps, like Map24 which offers an extremely fluid Java based interface and, a highly accurate detailed road + satellite map of Switzerland, both of which have certain advantages over Google Maps. There’s no doubt Google will step up to the plate, but for the moment they should be looking at both of these innovative web maps for an even more fluid and informative user experience.

I think Google’s implementation of satellite imagery could be expected since the current image retrieval system is pretty much set up to access satellite image databases.
