Magical Maps

Via bTang reBlog:

MultiMap.com is using its aerial photo/map mash-up as a tool to sell maps and photos. But it's the combination of the two that leaves me with my mouth hanging open.

Hover over the map and the (dhtml?) trick which will have you catching flys. So Cool.

Update:Life with Alarcity : Map Mashup dissects the JavaScript and gets the link love from Boing Boing

This trick is done completely in Javascript, located in global.js, and uses the overlay.style.* properties that I've really only seen used in Javascript-based menus before. I'm a bit confused on how this works in IE, as it does not support alpha tranparency
