Playing with free Google Map alternatives.

Inspired by a blog on how Nestoria switched from Google Maps to Open Street Map I feel the need to look into the new wave of websites using Open Street Map.

Nestoria switched for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is Google’s decision to charge for use of the Maps API. Nestoria’s new map consists of a combination of Open Street Maps, Mapquest Open Map Tiles, Leaflet and Mapstraction. They also references a developer’s post that has some examples of a free map using Leaflet
