A New Zealand Google Maps Mashup Roundup

Bay of Islands Accommodation Map - Heading to the beautiful Bay of Islands region of New Zealand? If you're planning on visiting New Zealand, this area is not to be left off of your itinerary. When you go, use this Google Maps mashup to find accommodation.

Kim Walbridge of Air New Zealand commented on a post I made on Oct.31/06 titled: "Air New Zealand uses Google Maps on its website". She has this to say:

Some more info about Air New Zealand and Google Maps...
  • Yes maps are also available as part of the airline's online booking system for customers in Australia, the UK and USA (and soon Hong Kong)
  • As well as seeing individual flights displayed on Google Maps, once you've selected both outbound and return flights, from the next page you can access a map showing the whole itinerary
  • Another more recent use of Google Maps on the Air NZ website is a locator for its retail stores
New Kiwi sites making use of Google Maps:
  • Zenbu - New local New Zealand search engine (see "Maps" tab)
  • MenuMania - Maps locations of restaurants (Example)
  • Taranaki Wiki - Uses Google Maps to plot points of interest & locations in the Taranaki Region
From the Blogosphere: Jithen Singh is excited about New Zealand driving directions while Chris Noble shares some cool New Zealand sights found on Google Maps!
