The one thing I like about the new Yahoo! Maps

The new Yahoo! Maps (more discussion) is out today. The interface looks ok and all, nice and big, smooth dragging (but a little jerky on zoom), etc. Though it won't be as cool as Google's or even Microsoft's until there's satellite imagery.

However, one thing that I'm exited about is the new Geocoding API (the other apis look great too). I've finally found a free, reliable source that geocodes a zip code by itself! This is huge in my book and will be great to try out when we hook up some geo features on NetworthIQ. Simon Willison has the API scoop.
