Google Maps now include NZ

This is big news for those of us down here in New Zealand – Google Maps have just released a major update which includes street-level maps for all of New Zealand. Unfortunately the satellite imagery leaves a lot to be desired, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.

Although Google Maps doesn’t come close to the functionality provided by local site Zoomin. This has probably the best search feature that I’ve seen in an online maps service and also has friendly URL’s to make it easier to remember your maps, like this: http://www.zoomin.co.nz/nz/wellington/brooklyn
