User Rating: / 17

ImageGoogle is adding more and more mapping tiles for India. India is now getting digitized and we are seeing new google mashups for India. I already have covered quite a few Indian google mashups.

Just recently I got a tip from one user about this Indian google mashup which shows new construction projects in India on google maps. Most of these projects looks like home construction but I might be wrong. Currently the site covers new construction projects for Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Pune, Gurgaon and Noida.

ImageI have seen quite many interesting online application developed by College students lately. Wether its their college project or their passion to learn something new. Here is an application that I stumbled upon which can visually trace route of a website. If you know "trace root" which tells you the path Internet packets traverse to reach a specified destination.

The visual trace route tool displays this on the Google Maps. The tool works by identifying the IP addresses of each hop along the way to the destination network address. The estimated geophysical location of each hop is identified using MaxMind's GeoIP database. After all of the hops locations' are identified, the path to the destination is plotted on a Google Map. 


Holiday Campaign From Google - Edit your Address

ImageGoogle has started a new campaign to better its Mapping solution, Google Maps. As millions of internet user, I also have setup Google as my homepage. While I was trying to search something, I saw a tip below the search box "Help holiday guests find you. Fix your address on Google Maps". Fix your address?? I clicked on the link and I was taken to the maps edito promo for holiday.

Check out the few screenshots that I captured. I am not sure how many of you have noticed that now if you search for any address in Google Maps, you will see new "Edit" link. Basically it gives you an option to place the address marker to the right position. But if you move the marker more than 200 meters, that would go through some thorough inspection.

ImageGoogle is known for doing some cool stuff from the begining. They were the first one who launched this coolest mapping solution, Gmail and much more. They were the ones who launched free mobile maps. And if you have GPS in your phone, you can basically use your mobile as a navigation system.


But wait a minute, what if you don't have a GPS in your mobile but you have GPS enabled device or no GPS at all? Here is the good news, Google mobile maps has launched new feature called My Location in Beta. Now you can See your location on the map, with or without GPS. Save time and tedious keystrokes finding where you are, what's around you, and how to get there.


If you have a GPS-enabled device, this blue dot corresponds to your GPS location. At times, or if you do not have a GPS-enabled phone you might see the blue dot surrounded by a light blue circle to indicate uncertainty about your location.
