Yahoo has unveiled a beta of an updated version of its mapping service, offering easier navigation and supporting mouse dragging and zooming.
Yahoo has added a feature for motorists that lets them create a route with multiple stops. The current version only gives point-to-point directions.
The company will release APIs that allow developers to create software that integrates with the service.
Yahoo has also added a feature that allows less technically skilled developers to use an Excel plug-in to create a webpage integrating information from a spreadsheet.
This could allow a real estate agent, for example, to show the location of homes for sale.
The beta is available here.
