Some loyal Google Maps Mania readers have tipped me off on some big news in the world of Google Maps - Street maps for all of Europe! What a surprise people will have when they wake up on Tuesday morning! Not only are street level maps now available (in addition to the satellite maps available previously) but so are driving directions! Google Maps Mania is about to erupt with more new mashups to come from this area of the world! :)
Update: Check the comments section for more information about the updated street map data in various parts of Europe as observed by many readers.
[Thanks to Frank and Stefan for the tip!]
