Google's recently acquired Keyhole product the zoom in on places using satelite photos, is being integrated with Google Maps
Interesting idea though I fail to see any real worth in the move. More a publicity stunt to get people more aware of the Google Maps product and pull users away from MapQuest and Yahoo Maps.
They are also going to eliminate the pricing. Which is promising - as Google does like to provide free solid products to support its search marketing efforts - a method I hope they never do away with!!!
