Cool centering/zooming functionality - I'm reposting this French Google Map of mountain biking tracks. Select a route from "Circuits GPS ->" then choose a zoom level from "Selection vitesse trace:" and select a route from below.
3D Tilted Japan Google Map - This is another repost of a Japan map that I mentioned. Blogger user Nipponcan has pointed us to the actual tilted map app that I only before had a screenshot for. Give this one a try - VERY cool.
