I don't know if this is possible already, but I keep wanting to "control the camera" as if I were playing a top-down video game or something, where it slowly scrolls and rotates the entire map based on how much you press left and right, etc. Simply allowing you to "walk around" the 2D map as if it were an older video game.
Is this already supported as some kind of "walk mode" that you can enable or something?
Although simple to implement for an expert, it's a major ordeal for me to accomplish on my own. I think this would be much used if it existed, although I'm of course waiting for the full-3D environments that Google Maps API is supposed to give people now... but until then.
I haven't heard a peep from Google after they released that video.
