Lost on Indian Roads !! ..Internet Helps you :)

I have been seeing lot of Map Websites which helps to locate Routes, National Highways in India.

There is one famous website which probably lot of people who search for Route maps for Indian Highways is : http://www.mapsofindia.com. It surly has good source of information ..But we always ask for more. So there are these others which I find good.

With the Golden Qua

Following are the websites offering Route Maps for Indian National Highways.

http://www.maptell.com
  • Very good Interface for finding route maps
  • ZoomIn & ZoomOut Operations
  • You can save the Image & Print for reference

See the US Interstate kind of Legend !!.This is for National Highway.

http://www.mapmyindia.com
  • This is a great website to get Local City Maps
  • Good Website for searching any place e.g. Location of Bank/Parks
  • Good if you are searching for a route map

http://www.mapsofindia.com
  • Good website with Route Maps
  • Distance calculations with different cities

Something I am searching for long time is a Driving Direction Website, which provides me driving directions to a place from Start to End !! ..Mapmyindia does provide that ..but that is on map only ..it will show you start-end legends. I am looking for something like www.mapquest.com for India !!

MapmyIndia v-2007 is just like Google Maps/Yahoo Maps. In fact, even better, MapmyIndia is focused on India. Visit www.mapmyindia.com today.

If you want to see your house on a map (the street actually), visit MapmyIndia (http://www.mapmyindia.com)

This is an Indian company's initiative at creating an internet map site that will come up and do as much as Google and Mapquest has done. We're also adding an Indian twist to the things we do. Check out this concept called 'eLocation' MapmyIndia has introduced.

eLocation allows you to get maps and directions to a peron's place, and the cool thing is that it gives you the directions in the words of that person (take a left after you see a panwallah, go inside that gate...u know, how people explani directions in India).

Search for this sample elocation and you'll see what I mean. The id is: mapmyindia

Looking forward to your comments on the blog or through mail (my email address is: shashi@mapmyindia.com)

Thanks and hope you can enjoy India in much much more detail =)
