Are they availibe in other web places with shorter delivery time than 2-3 weeks ?
Kummerly bought Hallwag when they went bancrupt but they still keep two distinctive brands.
Cartography is quite similar, just few graphic differences.
You can buy Hallwag maps in our shop in London. Look at: www.stanfords.co.uk
In terms of atlases I prefer bigger pages than more pages
You don't have to flip them so often.
For USA, AAA is my favorite. In UK it is published with association with AA (have both brands on cover)

There is big problem with China maps. Road construction is so fast than by the time map is printed it is usually out of date.
My favorite are produced by Gizi which is Hungarian publisher.
They cover China with 5 maps (1:2,000,000) which shows road and topography very well (rare with road maps)
They also do one for whole China but of course scale is not as detailed.

China maps are outdated as soon as they are published
I recommend maps published by Gizi (based in Hungary)
They publish 5 maps covering China (1:2,000,000) which show roads and topography (rare thing on road maps) quite well.
They also do one for whole country but not as detailed.

There are a lot of optimistic road maps for Poland. I think reason is that when mapmakers (especially from Western Europe) need to know what roads are going to be open they contact Polish authorities for infos about planned finishing of each road. And they believe what they are told.
But we all know how different reality in Poland is

Interactive aerial maps of countries

I'm not sure the title makes sense, but anyway, what I want are "local Google Earths". As Google Earth doesn't cover the whole planet in high resolution, let's collect local websites with interactive aerial maps of different countries.

For a start - interactive aerial-, altitude-, terrain- and road map of Slovenia.

Poland:

http://www.pkt.pl/mapy.html;jsession...34C11DEBBA88CB - only big cities, but the very best quality

www.zumi.pl - sometimes better than GE, whole country

Here are some from Norway, most of which works significantly better than google earth:
  • http://www.gulesider.no/kart/ - Maps, pictures and route finder. For pictures, select "hybrid" or "flyfoto", or in some cities when at high resolution: "skråfoto" (pictures at narrow angle)
  • http://kart.finn.no/ - Functionality similar to gulesider. For pictures, select "Gatebilder" (street pictures), "hybrid", "flyfoto", or "3D" (latter a bit corny, "gatebilder" a bit slow, and only offered for Oslo and Trondheim I think)
  • http://www.norgeibilder.no/ - Public engine, and in some aspects the best when it comes to pictures, at least outside the cities. However, only areal pictures taken at right angles (with added info about roads etc.)
  • http://www.visveg.no/ - Route planner from the public road authority.
  • http://viskart.vegvesen.no/ - Public road map engine, also from the road authorities. Interesting because it shows various data about roads, like traffic, speed limits etc. But it helps to know Norwegian...
  • http://ruteplanlegger.naf.no/veibok/ Route planner of NAF, the Norwegian relative of AAA. Norwegian only...
  • http://www.statkart.no Engine from the public mapping authority. Best on topographical maps? Also linked to "norgeibilder" (see above) and sea maps.
  • My favourite: http://www.senorge.no See snow coverage and depth as well as recent snowfall in Norway at any time (not terribly accurate on local level, though)
  • Handy for driving in Norway is also the weather service: http://www.yr.no (covers the whole world, actually...)
  • Then there is always http://www.viamichelin.com ....

Best one I'm aware of, but it's useless for people who can't read Hebrew.

Yeah, I got it, it's just that there were so many options.

It's not hard to figure out what to click, just too bad you can't zoom in that much (same with Sweden/Denmark).

No interactive aerial map of the Netherlands?

Eniro actually owns www.gulesider.no I mentioned above, so it is a bit strange than the their engines are not merged, i.e. to cover Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
