Austrian Google Maps Round-Up
Teleschirm is an Austrian website that wants to turn the tables on the pervasive users of CCTV by mapping where video surveillance is being used in public spaces. The site allows anyone to take a photo of a CCTV camera and enter its location on an OpenStreetMap or a Google Map.
Currently Teleschirm has active maps for all the major Austrian towns and cities. As well as the map view it is possible to view a list and photographs of the latest CCTV cameras to be posted to Teleschirm.
Öffliner is a free iPhone application that provides route planning on the Linz AG public transit network. Just enter a departure station and your destination and the application will show you the best routes and times available for your journey.

Fruchtfliege has created a number of Google Maps showing the location of different types of fruit trees in and around Vienna. In addition to the Google Maps the site features recipes and information about the different types of fruit.
