Place Searches: Need directions or a map to find a friend's house, a business or other place?

  • Mapsonus - the best online mapping site, in my opinion

  • MapBlast - has improved over mapquest

  • MapQuest - started it all, but now seems to have become more inaccurate!

Search Engines

  • Google - Considered by many to be the best

  • Metacrawler -  it searches about 10 or 20 other search engines automatically for you.

  • Excite - Has LOTS of links.

  • Yahoo! - always popular

  • People Searches: Phone number and Address searches: These sites allow you to enter a name for either a person or a business and to locate their phone number, address or email address.  Or you can enter the phone number and find the name, etc.

Travel Information

Looking for a restaurant?  I've set these up to start with Atlanta, but you can use them for any city (almost).

For the most complete list, go to EHSO!

The EHSO site provides all kinds of free information about environmental health & safety issues, including Phase I / II assessments, asbestos, radon, lead-based paint, home inspections, etc.  In addition, the company  EHSO, Environmental Health & Safety Outsourcing, offers EHS services, including commercial property assessments and home inspections.
