Ask City: "The Online Map With The Best Features Hands Down?"
« on: December 04, 2006, 11:03:05 PM »
CyberNetNews.com is quite excited about the new AskCity page:

I didn’t think an online mapping service could keep a clean interface like the one Google Maps has and still add more great features. Ask has done just that with their new Ask City and it is hard to even describe how smooth the site operates. In the screenshot above you can see that there is essentially three “frames”: search, results, and map. At first I was wondering “what if I don’t need the results frame” but then I realized you can maximize either the results or the map by clicking the little box in the upper-right corner of their respective frame.

Can you actually get it to do anything? I can move around the US and zoom in and out but nothing else seems to work for me (in Internet Explorer or Firefox) - I type a city in the Directions field and nothing happens when you click GO at all.

Even so it is a shame that they only cover the US (apart from topo detail the Canada area is blank - not even town names) and the rest of the world doesn't exist in any form.
