Google Maps teaches Peds to Walk

New, 1 comment

Not that you've ever accidentally walked off a ferry dock because of Google Maps, but online mapping services are now beefing up their walking and biking directions for non-drivers. Should Google succeed in its endeavor to add paths and trails not available to cars but accessible to bikes and pedestrians, the benefits should be many and obvious. For one thing, no more directing peds to walk in a circle along one-way streets. Ingenious, right? [BusinessWeek]
