Map my Chennai

Okay, so we’ll compare this with the already have beens and still find reason to complain. But of course that is what we always do. So let’s not talk about the obvious. Let’s talk about MapmyIndia. Rather tacky yes. But workable. They must have got past all those demons who said providing directions in India is impossible; chaotic country, chaotic roads, you know.

Here is what I did – asked for directions from the Government Museum in Egmore to Ice House in Triplicane. And MapmyIndia did a very decent job – it gave me the text as well as the map with a nice blue line.

    Wow! Since the last time I saw it, the Ice House has moved inland! Cool! :D

    Thanks for the link.

    Have seen it earlier, though I am very much a paper map person. Its a very useful thing. Even mapped, one big challenge is the number of lanes / inetrsections we have and with not many streets having consistent display boards. The other challenge will come for the suburbs, with mostly unorganised colonies (and fast changing / growing), difficult to map. I do however wish them the very best in their effort to mapp India.

    Hi Lavanya,
    Thank you very much for the site URL. Just a small info,visit and you can see your house (aerial view) and you can tag your home / fav place. I used to enjoy the beauty of Madras with that map whenever I find time. This site can also be used locate famous landmarks in Madras and also all around the world.
