Yahoo Inc. has unveiled a new design for its online mapping service -- part of its strategy to win back business from rival company Google Inc. The new mapping service improvements were unveiled yesterday.
Google improved its mapping service almost a month ago, and Yahoo is using some of Google Maps' features, such as scrolling across the map without having to wait for the Web page to reload. However, it has also introduced some tools not seen before.
Yahoo's general manager of local services Paul Levine said "There are four or five 'only at Yahoo' features." Source
