Maps and more maps

More maps!!

Another Wired article examined MapQuest - The theme is whether MapQuest can continue its dominance as it marks its tenth anniversary online. The article mentions some interesting examples of mapping uses and innovations. During Katrina, MapQuest set up a Dog Detective website to provide locations of stranded animals for rescuers. Competitive map applications made available a variety of formats for locating people and property in the aftermath of the storm. Shopping, automobiles and wireless are among big time opportunities being charted by the digital cartographers.
