Google Maps API now features Directions

30 May

I usually eschew posting news, but to me, this is big.

Most sites I have come across that use Google Maps API send visitors to Google Maps to get directions. No need anymore – Google has released driving directions as part of their API.

This really makes me pause – why would they do this? I’m sure the directions issue was pushing a fair bit of traffic to Google Maps – are Yahoo/MSN/Ask/Mapquest far behind?
