Yahoo! Maps Beta Released

november 3, 2005

I have been playing with the new Yahoo! Maps for a few weeks now at work -- and now you can too. It is a pretty big revamp of Yahoo! Maps that includes the ability to scroll around on the map without having to reload the page (I know, Google Maps has been doing that since their beginning). One cool feature that I like is the ability to do multipoint routing with the new Yahoo! Maps, very nice feature for those of us who don't just go from point A to point B and back. Tip for those who try it and are using a scroll wheel mouse (and who isn't nowadays?): Use the scrollwheel to zoom in and out of the map. Neat!
