Google Maps Mashups

A love Google Earth and using Google Maps. The best thing about them is that they permit "mash ups" - the overlay of various information on top of the maps that are provided by Google. There's even a blog that keeps track of these things.

Here's a cool one you guys might find interesting. BibleMap You select any book and chapter of the bible and scroll through it. Place names are highlighted and you can click them which will have the Google map center on that location. From there you can zoom in or out and get a good idea of the historical and geographical context of the text you are reading. Neat mash-up.
