Yahoo Launches New Map Service

Google-LocalI’m a big fan of Google maps (Google Local) – liking the speed and ability to switch to a satellite view.

Yahoo!-Local-1Yahoo launched a beta of their new Map interface last night. The Flash based service is fast and easy to use (although I find the zoom counter-intuitive). Check it out for yourself.

UPDATE: Dilbert Scoble has an interesting take on why Yahoo’s new map service won’t be as successful as Google Local.
