Top 10 features you didn't know about in Live Maps


A must read for anyone who loves online maps as much as I do: Live Maps / Virtual Earth: Top 10 features you didn't know about in Live Maps. You'll feel so much more productive!

I just found out about the ALT + mouse-drag feature this past week. It would be nice if there was elegant, small UI to flip you into this mode, but I have to admit that Live Maps webpage UI is already a crowded (in IE7 with the Live Toolbar I barely get much map when I bring it up on my two-year old ThinkPad - the designers must be prototyping off of 1600x1200 screens).

Technorati tags: ,
Wow, I'm impressed. I actually knew about half of these already (I've used all but 8, 7, 5, 3, and 1).

Interesting that the one link went to traffic cams in PHX. I was only able to find traffic cams via Google Earth (Google Maps didn't have the layer capability).
