The boys (and girls) at Google don’t waste much time do they? In response to Microsoft, Google too has now released their version of the Google Maps called Hybrid which also overlays labels with aerial satellite photos. Now if only they can add more detail to the maps then Ill be even more impressed. One thing that is really cool regardless is that these guys, including Yahoo, are all giving developers access map info via APIs that enables developers to create various cool applications such as bus stop locations in certain cities (in the US). Unfortunately the vast majority of these mapping applications are based upon US maps. Hopefully, we will begin to see more detailed, non US area maps so that developers around the world will also be able to create applications to take advantage of local mapping information.
