The new Google Maps G_PHYSICAL_MAP map type 07 März 2008

Hi there. I really love the new Google Maps type G_PHYSICAL_MAP. It was introduced around December '07 and it seems, it's not yet included in the official docs. I just found informations about it in the API blog. By using this new type, your maps look a lot more "real", you actually can see in the map, which of the areas are hills and which are just flat land for instance.
