What domains does Google Maps use?

A buddy is running a whitelist on his computer, with the rest of the internet blocked. He would like to use Google Maps, but he currently gets the site with just a blank for the actual map. What domains do we need to whitelist for him to get the maps?

Using Chrome's handy-dandy developer tools, it looks like:

maps.google.com
ssl.gstatic.com
maps.gstatic.com
khms1.google.com
khms0.google.com
mts0.google.com
mts1.google.com
themes.googleusercontent.com (?)
apis.google.com

If you zoom in, there might be more numbers mtsX.gstatic.com or khmsX.gstatic.com

If you zoom in to Street View, it also talks to these servers:

geo0.ggpht.com
geo1.ggpht.com
geo2.ggpht.com
geo3.ggpht.com

Not sure how many of those exist, clicking around I've only seen those 4 so far.
