Mapquest.com, the old grandfather of Internet map sites, is just one of the many choices you have for maps on the web today. I’m sure Mapquest has changed over the years. The interface has changed, but it looks like the same old “get a map” or “get directions” opportunities.
Yahoo! Maps was my favorite until recently. In addition to the “get a map” and “get directions” functions, and if you have a Yahoo membership account (free), you can save individual locations so that you have ready access to them. The maps are easily printable – and readable when you do print them.
Zooming works well. Once you have pulled up the map for a location, you can get driving directions “to here” and “from here.” That’s a nice touch. The “Link to this map” button is used to create a link that you can mail or put on a web site.
