The demise of Google Maps

Google Maps is no longer - it has been absorbed into Google Local, and the combined product, under the banner of Google Local is now out of beta.

This transformation took place in a number of stages yesterday - I first noticed the map had swapped sides, but then there was a further round of changes - the javascript has been revised again, to version 23.

I've taken the time to redo my CSS file which modifies the mapping UI. The main change is to make the map occupy the whole of the browser window, and to use transparency for the other controls that get placed in front of the map.

The revised CSS file is now available - as before I recommend using the Mozilla/Firefox developers toolbar to apply the CSS file to the page.
