    Somewhat off-topic for a “Google Maps Round-up” post- however, the World Wind application deserves some mention to mapping enthusiasts. At least, for those who may not have heard of this before (I just discovered it for myself via this Boing Boing post). I would love to figure out a way to integrate the functionality and feel of World Wind into a web element (much like the World Kit program, only more dimensional)

    Google maps make it super easy to track directions to your own location, home or business for visitors needing them. I created a little “copy-paste” code for those who balk at the complexity of Google’s API.
