  • Google Maps
    The best free online map service out there, in our opinion. Click & drag to move the map across the city. One cool feature is the option to see your map as a satellite image. Get detailed directions to your destination. And lots of plug-ins and mash-ups available too.
  • MapQuest
    The granddaddy of all online maps, this one lets you plug in any address, and it gives you a click-and-zoom map to help you find where you're going. Pretty good driving directions, too.
  • eMaps Interactive Web mapping
    To use this map, you need to download a plug-in, but it's well worth it. This interactive map lets you choose different layers. Each layer presents different information about the city: water hydrants, garbage collection zones, water pipes, and more. If you've ever played SimCity, it's a real-life version of the maps available in that game.

    Built on Google Maps, you can view a variety of information overlays, such as construction zones, "incidents" (is that accidents or other significant traffic delays?), park-and-ride lots, and more.
