Virtual City Toronto

This web application may become quite cool given enough time. Enter an address, or ask for directions as you would to Google Maps, and you get photographs of the area or route of your result. The interface of the beta is still clunky, but the principle is exciting: It’s far easier to find out how to get somewhere if you have an idea of how the place looks.

It only works for Toronto so far. Found via Spacing.
