It’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything about Yahoo! Maps and just when we thought that Yahoo! had forgotten all about the map service, Yahoo! has surprised us by performing a major update to Yahoo! Maps.

 Yahoo! has announced that, it has introduced new features for the Yahoo! Maps service.

Here are some of the new features incorporated into Yahoo! Maps as announced by Yahoo!:

  1. “Improved Local Search integration that utilizes the Search/Direct Display Index.
  2. More user-friendly Driving Directions – a more user-friendly left rail that’s both wider and more legible (larger text), for easier reading of driving directions.
  3. A redesigned Print Page.
  4. The ability to minimize multiple driving direction instructions to save vertical space.
  5. The ability to display in-line turn-by-turn images for each driving direction segment
  6. An Interactive Print Page Map.
  7. Users can now select from a variety map views (full route, full route + finish, full route + start + finish).
  8. Drag/Pan/zoom functionality for print page maps.
  9. Interactivity between Points of Interest (POIs) and Map view; minimized POIs are removed from the map view.
  10. Improved POIs – with ability to minimize/collapse multiple POIS to maximize viewing area.”

With these new features, Yahoo! hopes to give a breath of life to Yahoo! Maps. Yahoo! also states that, more improvements and updates for this service are in the pipeline all through this year.
