Google Maps Gets Upgraded

Wow, I must say I’m really impressed with the mapping technology Google has going right now.  They have been able to combine the satellite and map views into a hybrid view – and that results in a really useful map.  I used the satellite view when I moved to Knoxville this summer to check out where everything was, how to get to work, etc – and it was really useful.  I know Microsoft has had TerraServer around for a LONG time and I used to check that out every once in a while, but this latest google hybrid map is one of the most useful maps I’ve seen.  Check it out here.
