Use Google Maps to search within an area or neighborhood. Example: To find free wifi hotspots, type "free wifi" and the zip code; the free hotspots appear at various locations on your map, along with their phone numbers. Click on the link for a location to display the name, address and phone number for the location [and get link that offers directions]. If you are looking at an area on the map and want to locate a business, say a pizza place, in that area - enter "pizza" in the search box and a search will check the center of the map [no need to enter a location]. You can also use satellite and aerial images of a location by clicking "Satellite" at the top right corner of the Google Maps page. Or choose the hybrid view, which superimposes map data – including streets, street names, and landmarks – over satellite images.
Type in a starting and a destination address, and Google Maps plots the route, displaying it visually on the map itself, together with step-by-step directions for getting there (or back).
Locations & Directions around the world using Google interactive maps [example: 10 Market St, San Francisco]
Use the New York City Interactive Subway Directions Map and the London Interactive Underground Directions Map. Click on a point on the map on the right to set a starting point on your route. When you click on another point, the program will display the shortest subway route between those two points, including walking time on each end.
And use cool subway maps for New York City, London, Berlin, Boston and Washington DC. Place your mouse over the subway stops to display details about the stop [street names, connections to other trains & buses]. And overlay the subway map on a standard street map or satellite map.
