Google Maps


I’ve been using on line maps and directions for some time. Mostly I have used either Mapquest or Mapblast, but recently I became aware of, which is technically still in beta, but I’ve found it to be much, much better than either Mapquest or Mapblast. For example, you can type in the 3 letter identifier for the airport and it recognizes it, something the others just have no clue how to do which is inexcusable since that is a universal need for getting directions. Here’s an example from Google Maps on how to get from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Airport (AVP) to my old house in Swoyersville. Also, there are no annoying advertisements (at least not yet 🙂 that take up 90% of the screen and make the printout go on for pages. The resulting map and directions will typically print out in one page.
