Today's installment of "In Search Of:"

Does anyone know of an interactive map application that will show you regions within driving time x of a given location?

Imagine the contour lines on a topographic map. Now if we use that idea to draw a map where contour lines represent commuting time, rather than altitude...

Let's say I wanted the map to show everything within a half-hour's drive of my house. I'd get a weird blob with tentacles reaching out along the Parkway and the Turnpike, and sub-blobs at exits off of those main roads.

Such a map would be useful to job-hunters ("what can I get to within a reasonable commute?") and house-hunters ("where can I live, and wind up with a reasonable commute?")

It's useful, so it must exist already, right?
A cursory Google search did not find it, but I'm not sure what the search term would be.
