Maps, maps, maps

The launch of the high-wow-factor Google Maps has got my mind on maps (even more than usual). It looks like someone has released a Firefox plugin that will let you open up Google Maps locations in Keyhole (aka "The Other Google Maps") and Jon Udell has taken a peek into the easily retrieved XML driving Google Maps (should pure textual data, rather than pretty, draggable maps, be your thing). Of course, you could create your own maps using Illustrator, though hopefully none as bad as these. A map on screen isn't as cool as one printed on paper, so make sure you know how to fold your printed map the cool way so you can fit it inside a folder or notebook. Last, but not least, these flash-based visualizations of mid-Tokyo (with side-by-side comparisons to NYC) are pretty cool.
