6 Google Maps mashups!

GChart world time mashup now includes weather - I mentioned GChart a week or so back. GChart is a world time zone tool that allows to click anywhere on a Google Map to find out the time. The mashup creator has just informed me that weather is now available from this same one-click interface. Click anywhere on the Google Map and now you now get time and weather for that location. It makes for speedy time and weather checks for any world location!

Google Maps, Gas Price Mashup - Rick Burnes and Theo Burry have developed a great cheap gas price finder for Gas station locations include price, address, driving directions and the age of the price (eg: 1 day, 23 hours). It even gives you the option to change the price if you know an update. [via]

Celebrity Homes on a Google Map - I mentioned this mashup some time ago but it seems to be resurfacing so I thought I would mention it again. You have to sift through the list a bit until you can find an address that looks residential, and not the Hollywood office of the star's agent (where the fan letters go). [via]

USA, Canada, UK and Ireland Hotel Listings - is a new Google Maps powered hotel search engine that displays listings for hotels for USA, Canada, UK and Ireland. Choose a country, enter a city (and state for the U.S.) and results are displayed on a Google Map interface.

(Other Google Maps API-powered hotel search sites can be found here)

The Apple Store Finder now includes UK and Canada - I mentioned the Google Map which shows locations for Apple Retail Stores around the U.S. - This map has now included locations for Canada and the UK!

Endangered species sightings - Environmental Defense has created an interesting Google Maps integration with their website. It shows pins on a Google Map where people have stories of their first hand accounts with endangered species in their area. The map acts as the navigation interface to browse these stories.
