Don’t we all just want to find out place in the world? With this week’s picks we’ll turn address into maps and more.
This one comes courtesy of MacOSXHints.com: These are two AppleScripts that let you shoot addresses from the Address Book to the new (beta) Google Maps service. The scripts run inside the Address Book, from a contextual menu. This script requires Firefox (as Safari isn’t supported by Google Maps).
This is a similar plug-in for the Address Æ’aBook. It lets you select an address and get directions to or from it to another location. It also works through a contextual menu and requires Panther.
This unique application lets you arrange photos by location. The program can download street maps for you and allows you to search for an address to mark the location of your pictures. This requires Panther.
This free program gives you an interface for searching out graphics on the web. Beholder can also scan your hard drive and iPhoto library for the image you’re looking for.
Now, back to maps: Weather Maps downloads, well, weather maps for your selected region as jpegs.
MapIt! Firefox Extension
One more: this Firefox extension adds a MapIt option to your contextual menu, allowing you to find an address in selected text. I supports MapQuest, Yahoo! and Maps.com maps.
Well, I hope we’ve all found something or somewhere we were looking for. If, stop in next week for a new set of downloads. Looking for something in particular? Email your suggestion to brian AT macmerc DOT com.
