Yahoo Maps Mash-ups

So I'm been a big fan of Google Maps since they hit the scene. What was not to like? A slick AJAX application with the ability to use the data in your own web apps.

I was very excited when Yahoo! annouced the new beta version of its maps application. Written using Macromedia Flex, it raised the bar on mapping applications. I noticed, but didn't think much of it, that there was an API just like with Google. Then, I saw this, Justin Church takes the Yahoo API, adds a little Macromedia Flash, and pow, you've got fully customized skinned maps... very slick.

UPDATE: Somehow I missed this: Yahoo! Maps Applications Gallery
