Some Clued-Up and Clueless Maps of LA
The popular real-estate blog Curbed is a prolific user of the Google Maps API. It uses Google Maps to provide invaluable guides to neighborhoods in many of the United States' biggest cities. A good way to search for these mapped guides on Curbed is by the 'Curbed Maps' label on each city's website. For example - la.curbed.com/tags/curbed-maps (for Curbed's mapped guides to Los Angeles).
Here are just a few of the Curbed Maps for LA:
The Big Lebowski Map - The Dude's guide to locations used in The Big Lebowski
The Ultimate Clueless Guide to LA - a Google Maps guide to LA locations used in Amy Heckerling's film Clueless
