Google Maps Slide Control
The Google Geo Developers Blog is running a Summer Learning Series looking back at some of the geo related talks at Google I/O.
The latest post has a very nice example of a custom styled map viewed in conjunction with a normal map. The map has a slider control that allows the user to swipe back and forth between the two maps.
Using two maps with a slider control is a cool way to compare two different maps. I could see this being adapted to compare the different satellite imagery or map styles of Bing Maps and Google Maps.
