3D Driving Simulator with Google maps

gaiagiDriverGaiagi Driver it’s a mashed-up 3D driving simulator that uses a lot of web APIs across multiple windows to create a unique driving experience. Give it a starting and ending address and it follows the path created by the directions and shows your present position in four different views:

  • Upper left: Google Earth view (if yoy have it installed)
  • Upper right: Google Map view. You can toggle traffic information as well as street view information as overlays.
  • Lower left: Google Streetview
  • Lower right: Microsoft Birdsview

Given how much is going in all those windows, it’s more than a bit demanding, so it helps to have a fast Internet connection.

As a bonus, it includes a dozen pre-defined tours, just press the button and go:

It’s an impressive bit of mashup engineering.
