Tumblr’s back up and Google Maps for iOS is out. Looks like your night just got slightly more exciting. (Though the new phoenix-like Flickr app should keep you busy, too.)

Just an update to our post from earlier: The New York Times has created a Google Maps mashup explaining the zone system being used in NYC. As this isn’t going to be as useful if the power goes out, we’re going to leave up the original PDF, which includes locations of shelters and precautions you should take, for purposes of printing out. But this should help. (thanks waterman12053 for the find)

Ocean Exploration: Google has released a new collection of panoramic underwater images, powered by Street View, created with high quality photos provided by The Catlin Seaview Survey. Only a few locations have been added at this time, though Google says they’ll continue to update the Ocean collection with new underwater panoramas on a regular basis. So, what do you think? (Photo via Google Maps) source

So basically, Steve Jobs wasn’t a great cartographer. But will Google save us by releasing a native app? Uhm …

"We believe Google Maps are the most comprehensive, accurate and easy-to-use maps in the world. Our goal is to make Google Maps available to everyone who wants to use it, regardless of device, browser, or operating system."

That sounds vague. Anyway, if you’re on iOS6 and need Google Maps, here you go.

What do Craigslist and Apple have in common? Besides coming down heavy with the lawsuits of late, both are now using OpenStreetMap — after spurning competition (in Apple’s case, Google; in Craigslist’s case, PadMapper) that used alternate mapping systems. Interesting.

Google Maps unveiled their April Fool’s Joke a day early this year, and it’s worth a look — welcome to Dragon Warrior, USA! You can now view the world in stunning, lush, low-res 8-bit graphics. This is quite the home run gag, we must say.

Just tested the “expensive homes along highways" theory in Google Maps. Think the results speak for themselves.
