In their place will most likely be a mapping API - probably Google Maps. What we plan to do, however, is provide an option for users to decide whether to have maps turned on or off for cache listings. We know from our earlier attempt to add Google Maps that some people on dialup had issues with the increased bandwidth requirement for cache pages.
We'll be working on new map integration within the next few weeks. In the meantime the maps will remain on cache pages if they were already generated. If they were not there are still plenty of map links to different sites that can show you local maps. Also make sure to try out the dedicated Google Maps on Geocaching.com

Die Thumbnail-Karten oben sind bereits komplett weg. Die etwas größeren Karten unten rechts verschwinden spätestens, wenn man die Cache-Beschreibung editiert.
