The code for the map browsing component is in there too. It uses the tile server from

I kinda like the map browsing component, so I'm cleaning up the source and I'll push it out to kenai as a separate project sometime soon.
I would have published it earlier in the week, except that there's a bug on Snow Leopard where webstarted apps that use fullscreen get a bus error :-( Works fine in fullscreen as a regular desktop app, but something weird happens when webstarting. Works fine on all other platforms. I gave up trying to figure out what was going on and just dropped the fullscreen startup.
