Google News + Google Maps + Yahoo! Traffic

++= Local News & Traffic by zip code.. Mapped!

Virender Ajmani over at Mibazaar.com has created a cool mashup that lets you find local news based on your U.S. zip code. This map definitely fits the mashup definition. It combines the following:

Google Maps + Yahoo! Geocoding + Google RSS News Feeds + Yahoo! Traffic

To get started, simply enter your U.S. zip code to gather news headlines from Google News (Use 77058 if for an example). For most major cities there is a traffic map toggle that you can turn on that pulls in Yahoo! Traffic data. Once again Virender has created a great Google Maps mashup! Check out more of his creations linked from the left side of this map.
