Google Maps

Links to Google Maps are shared all the time. So how come the URLs are so unwieldy? (For example:,+nyc&sll=49.891235,-97.15369&sspn=52.967233,67.763672&ie=UTF8&z=17&iwloc=addr.) If TinyURL can figure out how to make a URL in just a few characters, can’t the rocket surgeons at Google do it?
