Interesting post about some upcoming enhancements to Live Maps. From what I’ve been able to glean, these enhancements should be available on October 16th (or so).
Think of this: pretty soon you will be able build a Popfly mashup that shows a map of your recent trip with your route highlighted, with clickable pushpins that take you to a slideshow of your photos or your home movies from the location, all with your own narrative voiceover. How cool would that be? And it shouldn’t even be all that hard! (Assuming you have the time to do the small amount of work to make it happen.)
