Google Maps Overlays


View Larger Map

Google Maps have become pretty ubiquitous. They are found everywhere and overlays are a very popular way to build on top of the existing google maps. This post will contain all map overlays I find. I'll keep this updated as I find more. If you know of more overlays, please let us know in the comments.

Weather Bonk - See Real Time weather on Google Map.
Bikely - Bicycling maps
The Movie Map - If you like google maps and you're a movie buff, you'll love The Movie Map. It contains filming locations. It doesn't look too fully developed to me, but then again I'm not much of a movie buff.
Zillow - Find your next home and check out the neighbors on this map.
Housing Maps - Google maps and craigslist housing listings
Google Maps Mania - Blog about Google Maps
PackageMapper - shows you a map of your FedEx, UPS, USPS package routes. Enter a carrier and a tracking number to see your package's progress plotted on the map. Sign in to enter a list of packages and see their current locations on a table or map.
Mizpee - When you gotta go... (You're curious, go on and click it ;)
Flickr Map - Flickr on a Map, this could become a time sink.

For some other map links here is a link to Lifehacker's list of non-Google map innovations. I'll be adding more map links as I come across them. If you know of other map mashups, let us know in the comments.
