We're coming up with easy tools to build exciting online maps, what stuff would you like to see on a map?

Maps are now online but still pretty static. What if maps were fast changing? Easy for anyone to create an interesting map of things, events or places, and fill it with other data like demographics, photos, laws and anything else? What kind of maps would you use or create? Give me your ideas!


Closing Statement from Premesh Chandran

Thanks everyone for your wonderful ideas. We're building a easy to use mapping tool called Feedgeorge, and we'll do our best to incorporate your ideas. Its where all geo-data can come together, and anyone can share, or look for, to get to know a place better. You can keep an eye on the project at feedgeorge.com. Or drop me a line at facebook.com/premeshchandran or @premesh and let me know your thoughts! Stay in touch, and lets map together!

    Oct 24 2011: I would like to see the latest updates on traffic jams, on the new traffic system and how many cars had recently passed by a road/lane. As most devices are now have GPS and at the same time also has contacts information, I also would like to see the sactuary places of my families, relatives and friends or even my offices and my colleagues.

    Well, I am grateful that technology is already there and very near to perfection of its own self that it can revolute into even better and better version than the present one.

    :-) I wish to create a map which can detect whether the baby universe, big bang and the other universe or multiverse really exist or not. If it is successful, I'd like to congratulate Stephen Hawking on his brilliant theory!
