Google Maps Beta, an Amazing Tool

   Posted February 13, 2005 by David Kirk in Google

The new Google Maps Beta is an instant bookmark in everyone’s favorite list.

    I have no natural sense of direction. Thus, GPS was created for me. In fact, I need a watch with a compass just to find my car in the parking lot. Needless to say, I appreciate online map services.

    Google maps has blown me away.

    The ability to click and drag the map around in real time without waiting for massive reloads is amazing. Take a look at the White House. Drag around, and see what is on each side.

    [list]Googlemap: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.

Would you like to see pizza places near the White House?
