Another very good site out of the US, is a walking tour of sorts of San Francisco - but with a twist.

Rather than have functionality seperated into different channels on the site, Mapjack is a mash-up of Google Maps, Google Earth and their own, well-shot 360-degree views.

In simple terms: as users navigate around map or aerial view on the bottom half of the screen, the upper area changes automatically.

As Jebworks rightly points out, adding hotels and other attractions from around the city - and, indeed, other cities around the world - would make it much more useful.

But as a concept it really is rather good.
