The Sunday Best of Google Maps

Room 77

Room 77 uses Google Earth to show you the view from hotel rooms across America. That in itself is enough to make it one of my favorite maps of the week. However Room 77 also includes an excellent ranking system for hotel rooms based on individual preferences for view, floor, distance from elevator and connecting rooms.

Crazy Boat: The Curse of the Trash Vortex

Two really great Google Maps games make it into my Sunday Best this week. Crazy Boat impressed me greatly with their use of map styles with the Google Static Maps API. The game is fun to play as well!

Street View Zombie Apocalypse

This isn't the first zombie game I've seen that uses Street View. But it is probably the best. Great and intense zombie avoiding fun on Facebook.

Rain Alarm

If you are putting the washing out on the clothes-line then you might want to turn on Rain Alarm. Leave Rain Alarm on in the background and get a warning when it is about to rain.
