topo map galore and simple to find and access

Nice to see that mainstream users, sports enthusiast, etc... are finding that topo maps and aerial photos are easy to locate, download, and view. A sample of this is a recent article in the Bowling Green Daily news (http://bgdailynews.com/articles/2007/07/08/sports/sports4.txt) describing that via simple search (using coordinates or place names) topos are now readily available to anyone. Most of us likely know this (although why some "of us" still elect to buy free topo maps) but its great to see this fact identified in the mainstream news... interesting and kind of nice to note that Google Earth wasn't even mentioned in this piece!
