Google Maps meets ‘Grand Theft Auto’

with one comment

Two Web sites are pushing what can be done with interactive interfaces to Google Maps and Google Earth.

The first, taking advantage of Google Maps’ new ability to work with Flash applications, lets you drive a car, bus, or truck around Google Maps.

Another novelty is a flight simulator for the browser plug-in version of Google Earth announced at Google I/O a week and a half ago. Again, the software is crude by gaming standards, but it does illustrate what can be done these days inside a browser.
