Ahoy! Google Maps discovers Australia! They even found our office here at CNET Networks.
In ye olde days it took a long time to discover Australia and map its rugged coastline. Much the same can be said about online mapping services in Australia -- it's taken a digital age to see dynamic mapping services down under. WhereIs.com, although recently revamped, is, and always has been, a clunky service that enjoyed a monopoly in online mapping services.
However, local developers will have to wait no longer -- Google Maps is live with up-to-date Australian maps.
