Mapof.it is an online tool that offers a quick and simple way to get maps and directions from popular mapping services such as Google Maps, Multimap, Open Street Map, Yahoo! and Tiny Geocoder. You do not have to visit any of these services, all you have to do is type in the address including your search parameters after the first slash, that is Mapof.it/<my search>

For example:

    If you want to get a map of Trafalgar Square in London then you need to type mapof.it/london,trafalgar square and the application will take you to that location on Google Maps.

    On the other hand, if you need a direction route between London and Liverpool just type in mapof.it/london:gb/liverpool:gb with a slash between locations.

simple maps and directions

By default Mapof.it will take you to Google Maps, but if you like a different mapping service for getting maps and routes you can easily change the default setting to other mapping service. To do that, simply type mapof.it/set/<code>, anc change the <code> to corresponding mapping service. See below.

    * Google (g) – mapof.it/set/g
    * Multimap (mm) – mapof.it/set/mm
    * Yahoo! (y) – mapof.it/set/y
    * Open Street Map (osm) – mapof.it/set/osm
    * Tiny Geocoder/Tiny Multimap Route (t) – mapof.it/set/t

    (beware, shameless plug follows ;)

    I've been working on a similar service recently - it works more like a "traditional" URL shortening service, and creates 17-character long URLs for map views, like: http://xm.my/3W6r

    It's still under development, but the main functionality is there.
