Online Maps

So far, I have used only 3 different online maps – MapQuest, Yahoo Maps, and Google Maps.

It is interesting that sometimes when you try to find directions to a place, you get three different directions from these online maps. I am beginning to wonder if they are using different programs or satellite configurations.

It always irks me when the online maps give a direction that is really not the best route. For example, some of the maps will give the shortest distances in terms of miles but in reality it might take longer. Sometimes taking a particular highway, even though there are more miles involved, will get you there faster.

I am curious if this is the same way with the GPS in cars… hmm.

But in the recent days, I have found Yahoo Maps to be more the most efficient and accurate.
