    Google maps is still my favorite online map application. Perhaps because I’m already get used to it. Haven’t tried the others but I love Google Map (especially the Street view to go to places that I haven’t been before).
    Wish the photos can be updated in real time though heh heh

    Many of the above listed services didn’t show detailed view of Indian cities, there must be some local service for this purpose, but still the list provided by you is nice and very useful. :)

    @Chetan If you want to view Indian cities then you must go for Google maps as it is highly recommended by me. Other services are also useful but they are not particularly for watching map of cities, you can have fun with those services by other ways :-)
