PC World Ranks Online Maps

In one of those kinda-superficial tech-journalism articles that assigns scores to competing products and services, PC World’s Christopher Null asks, Which Online Mapping Service Is Best? Null compares Google, Bing, and MapQuest, in six categories — how well, Null says, they’ll get you from point A to point B (essentially, features and UI) — and ends up ranking them in that order. But this is hardly comprehensive, and using other criteria would no doubt yield different results: Google would do better on hackabiity/extensibility and worse on basemap accuracy, for example.
