gzoom

This is a greasemonkey script to allow you to easily zoom in beyond the normal limits on a Google Map. ( this idea was stolen from this post on reddit )

In its current form you need to be running greasemonkey on firefox. If you know how to install these, here is the script.

   gzoom.user.js

Usage

Once installed, here's how you use this thing.

  1. Whenever you visit google maps there will be a drop-down box to the immediate right of the main form, like so.
    ss1
  2. You can adjust this box beyond the normal limit of 19 up to 30, and zoom beyond the normal limits, like so:
    ss2

Installation

To use you must be running greasemonkey on firefox. So, I'll mention both.

  1. Install firefox.
  2. Install greasemonkey.
  3. Go to the link gzoom.user.js a click the Install button in the upper right. If you don't see this button you haven't installed greasemonkey correctly -- in which case return to step #2.
