I have found a extensive article about the many uses of Google Maps. it discribes how it can be used in many different ways for many different means. The article shows ways to use the map from traking the movement of the international space station to local crime in your area. the list of different uses for the map is mostly amazing and very through. It starts with a discription of the basic uses then moves on to much more complex uses of the program.
It seems to have been created to give google map user a much greater insight into the potential of google maps. The creaters of this article must think that Google maps has great potential, as this report is extensive and well written. This is bound to aid users in there future mapping.
