Just picked up a post on Dan Karran’s blog that Google Maps is now showing street detail for the Isle of Man. It’s interesting how now there’s a whole selection of places starting to show this detail, including Cloudmade which is an interesting offering who source their data from OpenStreetMap.

I do like keeping my eye on the mapping scene, especially as I know the people involved with MannGIS, the government GIS initiative here in the Isle of Man. It’s always a good idea to see what other people are doing as it helps seed new idea for projects I’m working on and suggest cooperation that can increase value. Mapping is also one of those things I’m interested in just because of the usefulness that technology can provide in this space.
