Where you goin’?

Since most of us are on the move this holiday season, I thought I’d point this new bit of functionality Yahoo! has rolled out this week. As reported on Slashdot, the Yahoo! Maps site is now providing real-time traffic overlays on their maps. Supported mostly in major metros, this might save a step or two when planning a (yuk) trip to the mall this season. In Atlanta, the maps are using info from the GA DOT, which looks like the same info on the Georgia Navigator site. All the same, I’ll keep my Konfabulator Web Images widget showing me a set of Atlanta traffic cams all the same. And when I’m on the go (and isn’t that when we usually need traffic info?), I use the GA Navigator’s new PDA-friendly mobile version of their web site on my Treo 600.
