google maps for australia and new zealand!


"good news everyone", google maps just added street maps for australia and new zealand! maps.google.com.au isn't live yet, but i'm pretty sure that isn't far off now! this is great news for all mapping aussies. so that was only a couple of weeks after google maps europe. not bad at all.

Google-Maps-Sydney

as much as i would like, i'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with my little google maps australia street maps mashup before. i'll still leave the demo online, because maybe it will come in handy as sample code for other places that still do not have street maps and want to employ the same trick.

thanks to peter and james who tipped me off in my blog comments about the exciting news!
