BBC News does its own Google Maps style nav

An excellent Google Maps-style interactive on the BBC News website, showing an aerial map of Baghdad with dots marking the worst atrocities, each linking to the appropriate news story; and coloured polygons showing the changing ethnic makeup of city sectors. Literally a new dimension to your understanding of the story.
I’m expecting to see a lot more of this kind of map-based navigation, as people become more familiar with the Google Maps API. There are some good examples out there already, like Flickr’s geotagging. I’m also hoping to do something similar with a major client, as we spec up a publishing solution for lots of regional offices.
