The Disney Blog recently introduced an attractive Google Maps mash-up that brings a nice view over Disney World. As you can see, the map was created using My Maps, the recently introduced function of Google Maps, and displays all the elements of the Disney World such as the rides and the restrooms. The map is quite well-developed and provides a considerable amount of
information, allowing the users to view detailed pictures provided by Flickr and also read some comments made by other users.
"Someone has gone through a lot of trouble to make a Google Maps mash-up of the Magic Kingdom. View it with the Satellite option for the most fun. It has every restaurant, restroom, and attraction highlighted on it. If you could get a bit more data on each item and then get this on your mobile phone/blackberry/etc, you wouldn't have to port around that guidebook anymore," the publication presented the Google Maps mash-up.
Since the release of the My Maps functions, the developers from all around the world created interesting mash-ups of the Google products allowing the clients to use the product with a different goal than the one presented by the search giant. In the past, the most interesting creation was a game that enables you to fly over a certain location using a nice looking plane.
As I said today, the parent company Google is continuously improving the two maps products, Google Maps and Google Earth. Recently, the downloadable application Google Earth was quietly introduced as a new beta version, bringing some new and innovative features to its users. For example, you can view a certain Earth location straight in Google Maps using a simple button implemented by the search giant.
