= Google Maps Mashup Roundup Part 1 (of 2)
(See Part 2 here..)
Google Maps is powering the Web 2.0 craze here in Canada. It is bringing to life databases of information that previously sat dormant due to few searches and is giving geographic significance to text based information. Attempting to summarize new Canadian Google Maps mashups in Part 1 we'll cover Google Maps Mashups that cover all of Canada or more than one province:
