Google Maps for the UK launched

Google has launched Google maps for the UK as well as Google local.

Whilst Google maps is not a new feature it is certainly nice to see it
in action for the places that you know. I think that with it's
directions feature and clean graphical interface it will probably give
multimap a run for it's money.

I like the fact that the maps are consistent graphically compared to
multimap's digitised Ordinance survey maps. The use of Javascript to
request data makes the whole user experience very swift and responsive
and it works incredibly well. Google have taken this technology and run
with it and we are now seeing what can really be done.

I am looking forward to the satellite imagery feature (see to be released for blighty.
