Yahoo has recently had a major overhaul, adding some new features like integrating local search capabilities and results and adding some “wow” factors to their Yahoo Maps service.
“Rather than starting with a text-based form that asks you to enter a location, the new interface is much more visual, featuring a map of your default location when you start using the service.”
“There are also search forms that let you map a specific location, get driving directions by entering a second address, or do a local, keyword-based search. Entering a location causes the map to zoom in on the location. Entering a second address displays driving directions beneath the forms, rescales the map and draws a line illustrating the route.”
Pretty cool stuff.
