"Friendly" Internet Map Links
I've often used TinyURL to convert those huge URLs from Google Maps or Virtual Earth - it makes any URL into a nice short (tiny) URL that is much easier to email to friends without the URL being broken. Recently I ran across this beta tool that is similar to TinyURL - but goes even further and is focused on mapping. It is called JumpToMap. The links JumpToMap creates are good for multiple different mapping sites. Here's a blog article that gives some more details: http://freegeographytools.com/2007/friendly-urls-to-address-maps
