Spanish report: Global Spanish effort and Illustrating Bilbao

Luistxo Fernandez is our eyes and ears for all the great things happening in the Spanish Google Maps world. He is one of the correspondents here on Google Maps Mania helping English speaking readers to be aware of other mashups and developments being made on the web in this language. Here he is with his latest installment:

Some Spanish notes written by Luistxo from Tagzania..

LasRutas.com, ("The routes") is an effort to build a big Spanish-language base of Google Maps. At the end, it's a place where you can mark different places, and every spot admits comments. However, it has some added features as a tool to measure areas, so this probably may evolve into a more elaborate thing.

A Basque company, Alianzo, has launched Bilbao.bi, a mashup devoted to comment, tag and illustrate (with Flickr pictures) the city of Bilbao, in the Basque Country (Spain).

Finally, a very interesting blog about map-related things, Tecnomaps is a professional blog launched by CDYS, a Spanish company that develops commercial blogs, among other things. Tecnomaps covers Google Maps, Google Earth, web-mapping at large and GIS things (with great technical expertise, I might add).
