Yahoo Map

Yahoo started new tool called Yahoo Map(Now Beta Version). Yes, as it’s name indicate it gives you the map like Google-Earth or Microsoft virtual Earth. Some of it’s features are
1. Multi-point driving directions. Get yourself from point A to B and on to C all in one map.
2. Integrated Yahoo! Local. Includes our local search, a browseable interface, easy access to business ratings, reviews, and events.
3. Geo-coding, Yahoo! Local, traffic information and map images.
4. The new overview map (in the upper-right hand corner) helps you get your bearings. The little grey box representing your big map is even drag-able. Use it to move around rapidly without losing context.
5. Simple API.
6. JavaScript-based APIs for Flash or AJAX let you choose the tools you’d like. You can host the maps on your site and include any features you like.

In addition to the major features, they added a lot of small touches, including address auto-complete from your Yahoo! Address Book, using your home area or most recently used address to start, and the mini-map and left panel, which can be hidden when you want to focus on just the map. The maps are easy to bookmark too. There’s no URL obfuscation.
Now only US and Canada is listed there. Iam waiting for my India’s map
