So www.smaps.co.nz would still work as a mapping system, just using googles maps and keeping smaps easy api so map urls look better.

That would be so cool.

"Nielsen/NetRatings' figures show Wises had 324,000 domestic visitors in October while Smaps had 154,000."

Thats odd, I thought a lot more people used Smaps.

I used to use Wises all the time, but then they did some renovations which had them doing everything in Java (from memory) and it became a real pig of a site.
The 'Driving Directions' feature was always really good though.

Sad to see Smaps go though.

Nope, Nielsen is about right.

Javascript... Java != Javascript.

Yep, that would be an easy cheap alternative to closing it down all together.
