Just a quick shout out to our friends at Yahoo! Travel who just developed a new mapping prototype using the Yahoo! Maps API. They’ve essentially layered off-network maps of national parks and airports on top of the maps already incorporated into the Travel Guides. It doesn’t change any of the other mapping tools like panning, zooming and satellite view, but does add a bit more detail. Check out this example of the Grand Canyon:

The full capability isn’t in alpha yet, but it’ll be interesting to see how it evolves. You can play with a couple of the map prototypes here and here.

Also check out the Yahoo! Local/Maps Blog for more detail.
