Digital Cartography [3]

New set of interactive maps from across the Internet

May 15, 2013

As we mentioned lats week, Google Maps will undergo through some changes. These rumors continue to make their way in the Internet, and Google Maps mania reported today (15/05) what some of those changes could be: A smarter Search Box, Flight Search and Directions, and maps that adapt to the user’s preferences and search habits, getting better as they’re used. More on that at Droid Life.

While we wait for Google I/O, later on, to see what will really change, we leave you with more cartographic inspiration:
