Google Tinkerers — Map Overlays

My colleague, Greg, yonder at GregNews.org, sent me a link to a CNN story entitled “Google tinkerers make data come alive“. Definitely a neat article, but I think that the site that takes the cake which has been around for quite sometime now is Paul Rademacher’s HousingMaps.com which takes data from Craig’s List and places it on Google Maps. I remember popping him an e-mail a few days after I stumbled across it and was like, “Holy smokes this is incredible.” Paul is a pretty approachable guy if you have comments or suggestions by the way 🙂
