yahoo maps


Recommended Posts

does anyone know how to do driving directions with yahoo maps? Yahoo maps are better than google. I can do it scripted or in a web viewer..

I've experimented with it a bit... yahoo wants the longitude and latitude to be embedded in the URL for driving directions. Lacking that info, and having only the street address, city state and perhaps zip to go with, I am able to bring up a map but the driving instructions are missing in action.


Oddly, I can get it to draw the route on the map (using latitude 1 and longitude -1, with the assumption that I would not know the real lat and long) but the instrux do not come up.


If that is useful to you I can give you a web-object formula, but Google maps (including driving instrux) is a hell of a lot more user-friendly for this.
