Re: Google Maps

That's actually very accurate. It shows a development near me that is only about a year old.
It also shows the shading of county/city land. I looked at where some of my property is, and the shade lines are right on.

Re: Google Maps

Wow, those are MUCH more current than MapQuest or Expedia! FWIW, the data is provided by NAVTEQ, which is the same company that provides data for most OEM in-car navigation systems.

Yea, we saw that yesterday at work. We also found a thread that tells how they did it. It is actually DHTML, but w/ a "hidden" iframe (which I'd never heard of). It's built sort of like cutting a hole in the floor and having the map on the other side and sliding it around to "frame" the part of the map you want to see.

Pretty sweet.
