Google Maps have finally come out with street level mapping for indian cities. Currently they are covering big cities only. Being based in New Delhi it was great to finally see my neighbourhood(new friends colony) mapped. Though the detailing is not very accurate and the naming of roads is different from one commonly used around the area and city. But it surely is a boost for hundred of companies waiting to launch map based software applications for india.
Google map is also providing direction services which is good keeping in mind commonwealth games comming to india in 2010. The only sad part is they are yet map the suburbs like NOIDA and Gurgaon which surely would be more easier to map as compared to delhi as they are well planned and urban planning authority keeps check on unauthorized constructions.
