I have some docs there, and it is very cool - but I have had mixed success - they don't like all the pdf files with complicated stuff that I throw at them - in the end I have resorted to rasterizing the whole map and putting that in a pdf-file - and then it looses some of the point...

Another such site is Yudu

Their 'feature rich' scripting seems slow and a bit laggy, clients get frustrated easily! (and so do i)

I just tried Yudu:

It doesn't zoom in very far.

This looks pretty neat.

I've been using Box.net to send large files to clients as well as to have a central place to upload new versions of things without having to send an email to a whole group every time I do so. But Box.net costs money and it looks like this Scribd thing is free...

Do you use this site to share maps with the world or just with your clients? Is there a way to password protect items for clients who require privacy? What are the file size limitations?
