Argentina and Chile Google Maps Mashups
Flof Google Maps mashup has Buenos Aires street maps - A fantastic site to share and find out about interesting places in Argentina that features KML export, map embedding, RSS feeds and more! The cool part about this mashup is that they have inserted street maps into the mashup even though Google Maps is not yet providing them in this country!
Buenos Aires Lodging Mashup - Here is bilingual English and Spanish tourism mashup for the city of Buenos Aires. Solving the challenge of no street maps this Google Maps API site has Microsoft Virtual Earth streets and Google satellite imagery and map controls. It features lodging alternatives throughout Buenos Aires including hostels and 1-4 star hotels. Geo developer Javier Vásquez also informs us of another mashup he has created: "..We have created another one for a trendy beach south of Buenos Aires called Carilo Most of the descriptions are in Spanish only as 90% of our visitors are Spanish speakers, however we are translating them to adequately serve our non Spanish speakers patrons."
