Google Maps

Some of you may use toporama from the canadian government for maps. Others may use the NRIS site in montana for complete topo maps of the stae. Others may even prefer the satelite maps from pixxures. However for simple road trip planning, and navigating your way around cities, the new google maps site is hard to beat (well at least if you don't run safari). it has a nice java interface that seems much better than the old mapquest site that was similar. This is a definite plus for those individuals wanting to write up directions, put out maps in guidebooks etc. For guidebook authors, consider using a screen capture program to capture the google map, and then trace over it on another layer in photoshop.
