Google Map available for UK

Originally uploaded by baadaal.
The brits now got the UK version of the google map , which is absolutely awesome. I tried finding Mauritian restaurants in UK , and was really impressed that they already had it indexed.This is because apparently google has taken the addresses of local establishements from which already had a list of restaurants , businesses , hotels,etc.. in the United Kingdom.

Try the following search string in the search box on the google map page:
liverpool street station,City Of London, Greater London, EC4N, United Kingdom
This will give you an idea of the depth of information that can be retrieved.

Do click on the Satellite link at the top left corner of the screen.This will give you a stallite image of the location which you have searched for. However there is a limitation to the level at which you can zoom. For very good zoom satellite pics do try keyhole which would make james bond blush (Keyhole is owned by Google).
