Cover Story in Technology Review – “Killer Maps”

Technology Review (a magazine by MIT) has a cover story called “Killer Maps” on new Internet mapping technologies highlighting Google Earth. This is an excellent story not only highlighting Google Earth, but also talking about the interfaces (APIs) Google and other mapping tools are creating allowing programmers to customize the maps. This is a long article with lots of examples of how these tools are being used. The first “page” is dedicated to an example of Google Earth being used to plan a trip to Chicago.
You can read the article here on their online magazine, or buy their magazine at the store. This is an excellent article!
