Taking Flight with Google Maps
General Electric's Points of Departure is a nicely designed Google Map showcasing the 6,000 most popular airports in the world. You can browse the airports by name, by the busiest airports, the most scenic or even view those situated on small islands.
Each airport is shown with Google Maps satellite view. Pictures from Flickr are also displayed beneath the map and their location shown on the map with map markers. The map also includes a permalink buttom that allows you to share your favourite map view.
