More on Google Maps

Now that a few days have passed, people are taking a good look under the carriage of Google’s latest beta, Google Maps. Here are the best discussions of Google Maps I’ve found:

  • Jon Udell talks about the possibilities of XML Output from Google Maps.
  • Jason at 37Signals posts about the user experience—compare the four screenshots he posted to see how Google’s outdone the other popular map services.
  • Simon Willison talks about their use of XSL and JavaScript.
  • Joel Webber has a great analysis of how Google Maps works. Surprises include the fact that they use hidden frames more than XMLHttpRequest and the amazing amount of trouble they went to to support the push pins and superimposed driving routes.

Your link above to the 37Signals commentary is miscoded, and in Firefox I get sent to Microsoft's site!!! the link goes to

http://http//www.37signals.com/svn/archives/001051.php

there's an extra "http//" in there that's screwing things up... (your comment form won't take it when I type the correct link :-(
