I spent some time playing with QuikMaps this morning. This is a mashup using Google maps that lets you add markers and text and so forth, like Wayfaring Wayfarer did (or does, I haven’t been back to Wayfarer in forever). QuikMaps, though, lets you draw on the map. I had been looking for something that might allow tracking a route, for instance Peter’s bike route across country. With this he could embed a US map in his site and have a line tracing the route that he could update on stops. Seems to me other uses for this sort of map notation could be found. A pretty cool tool.
Unfortunately it uses an iframe tag which WordPress won’t deal with so I can’t embed a map here.
But this looks like it has possibilities -check it out!
