Google Maps (for a time named Google Local) is a free web mapping service application and technology provided by Google that powers many map-based services including the Google Maps website, Google Ride Finder and embedded maps on third-party websites via the Google Maps API.
People have started building Applications using this API. Here is some thing new for Google MAP, How about Driving Car on Google Map? I am not kidding.
Katsuomi Kobayashi, a developer from Osaka, Japan has developed A 2D Driving Simulator on Google Maps which uses Google Flash API. Amazingly movement of car on Google Map is really fast and is at 40 FPS (Frames per Seconds)
Look at The screenshot
This is Katsuomi Kobayashi’s personal project and it is based on 2D Driving Simulator A Flash toy that simulates car parking and trailer movement.
