UK Google Maps Mashup Roundup!

Zoopla



Zoopla is a new UK real estate start-up that uses Google Maps to highlight the locations of properties. Zoopla's biggest innovation is their TemptMe feature. Any house owner can click on their house on the map and set a price that they might be tempted to sell at. So even if an owner is not planning to sell they can set a price for their house that would be too good for them to refuse. Similarly house hunters can click on houses not for sale and indicate a price that they would be willing to pay for that property.

Isango



Isango is a new site offering holiday tours, sightseeing packages and activity holidays to more than 50 countries across the world. Each location or vacation is illustrated with a Google Map of the area.

Hotel Pronto

Hotel Pronto searches for the best available deals for hotels. When it has found the cheapest hotels in your selected destination it displays the results on a Google Map.

Flextraffic



Flextraffic is a UK map of road works and traffic delays. You can search for traffic delays by region and the delays in that region are mapped and placed in a sidebar. Clicking on an icon on the map will retrieve more information on the severity and likely length of the delay. The map also includes a number of London traffic cams.

UK Missing Kids

The Missing Kids Map now includes the United Kingdom. The site uses Google Maps with information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) to display a current map of the origins of missing children in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. If you rollover the name of the missing child or click on a marker on the map an information balloon appears with case details on the missing child.

Where is the Path

Where is the Path displays Google Maps alongside Ordnance Survey maps. The Ordnance survey maps are far more detailed than the accompanying Google Map and include things like public footpaths that Google omits.
