More on Google Mapping

This business of mapping is progressing rapidly. Today Google offered a new and easy way to create Google Map mashups. (Read this PCWorld description and this overview on getting started.) Mashup refers to the way various types of web data can be combined to create new tools. In this case, you can mashup the mapping/geographical data with notes, pictures, videos of your own to create maps/tours that you can share online. This is just an extension of mapping stuff I noted in previous posts, but it is now easier to do and is available online. I suspect it will just be a matter of time before someone gets around to creating such a map based on biblical data to illustrate things like the lives of Abraham, Jesus, or Paul.
