9. From Google Maps Mania:The Outlook is Cloudy on Google Maps
Plane Finder, the real-time plane tracking website, has added options to view both the cloud layer and the weather layer on its Google Map. To view the new weather layers on Plane Finder select ‘Map Options’, ‘Map’ and then select the ‘cloud’ and / or ‘weather’ check buttons. Martin Kleppe of Ubilabs has created a rather beautiful example of the cloud layer in action on a styled Google Map. This example map uses dark map tiles which contrast nicely with the new fluffy white clouds.
