First-Person Computer Map Turn Images

A photograph of each turn you are supposed to make

Yahoo and mapquest maps are great, but they only give you a bird's eye view map. In the directions, they list each turn you make.

It would be nice to have a photo of each turn, exactly as you would see it when you are driving, in the directions. They could photoshop in a big arrow pointing the correct direction.

At first they could simply do the highways and major intersections of large cities, and add more as they go on.

       Yeah, there's some interesting comments there.   

       I think the video route is too much, but still images are just the right size and the right amount of information.

       These are called landmark systems and there is a lot of research giong on about them both for navigating physical and virtual spaces.
