More Mash-ups with Google Maps

Posted by: Rob Hof on July 27, 2005

The mash-ups keep on comin’, and Google Maps is leading the way. O’Reilly Radar has a roundup, including one tracks the space shuttle. ApartmentRatings.com just let me know that they’ve done a map mash-up (a map-up? Naah, guess not) for their site, where you can check out what people are saying about apartment complexes around the country. Eric Rodenbeck of Stamen Design, creators of Mappr!, which we wrote about, pointed me to an impressive, if depressing, map mash-up of U.S. fatalities in the Iraq war. If all that’s not enough, you can go hogwild at Google Maps Mania, where you can find links for everything from potholes in New York City to the delightfully juvenile Nuke your Ex. Keep ‘em coming (in the Comments, down there)….

Yet another cool travel mashup with a twist.
It allows you to categorize places and then you can edit places already there, "wiki style".
That and the ability to import, and export to your GPS make for a pretty powerful app.

Google maps are interesting but it's a sign of the current bubble that technology is being seen as valuable for its own sake. After all, showing things on a map isn't exactly revolutionary. Maps mashup maps mashup takes it one step further and shows you where all the map mashups are on a maps mashup.

One of the first real travel mashup sites is Travature.com. They have mashups that combines Google map with Open Wiki Style Travel Guides, Community Driven Restaurant Reviews, Airfare Search, Flickr Photo Streams, and soon to be added Weather and Hotel Reviews. Travature's premise is to give you a sort of complete look at any location your considering traveling to.
